Summary

Still looking for answers to explain her uncanny ability to see her dead ancestors, Abby shifts her focus to spiritualists, seers, and psychics of all kind. Meeting them with an open mind - and a healthy dose of skepticism - she wants to know if any of them genuinely share her strange experiences or if they're simply conning gullible people. When she ventures into a series of "readings" given by area psychics, she makes a startling connection that defies even her wildest expectations.

Unsure of what to make of the encounter, Abby turns to her boyfriend, Ned, and the two enlist the help of a scientist friend with equipment that can map the mind. Hoping to pinpoint where the source of their ability lies, they agree to be subjects in a one-of-a-kind experiment. But when Abby is strapped into the machine, the readings - and their implications - are more shocking than either of them could have anticipated.

Faced with the new, improbable connection and the possibility that the experiment has changed her life irrevocably, Abby will be forced to reevaluate everything she thought she knew about her ability - and herself - and answer the daunting question of what she wants next.

No real action.

I'm not saying it was bad but I struggled to finish it. I kept waiting for something to happen.

Don’t bother

Very tedious. Seemed repetitive and unproductive to forwarding the story line from book to book

OMG Abby Sounding Like a Whining 2 Year Old

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The first books were nice... but this book she is being an annoying pain almost impossible to continue listening. Abby is not enjoyable in this book she is overly obsessive and narcissistic.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Make Abby less self absorbed and more independent...take a more mature approach. Argh!

No Plot, Characters seem unengaged in story.

What disappointed you about Search for the Dead?

No plot, repetitive and directionless chapters. Abby seems totally overwhelmed and almost too exhausted to show up for the book.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Something by Juliet Blackwell or Kate Carlisle.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I don't blame the narrator. She did not have much to work with. I have heard her before and she was a competent reader.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I usually adore this author. This book was just a total mess and everyone is entitled to a mistake.

Any additional comments?

My experience leaves me wondering if someone other than the named author wrote this and what happened to the editors. I hope she recovers and gets back on track.
