BlindSight - Adams Thriller Complete by Susan Peterson Wisnewski

Description:

Life is already bad enough after Tisha Adams loses both her job and her beautiful Manhattan apartment. Living in a musty garage apartment and working for her uncle in Queens, her life is upended when she witnesses a murder on her train commute. 

When the body disappears, she teams up with Detective Murphy, a man with mysterious abilities. But Tisha is keeping a secret of her own, a skill she’s always hated and feared. The dead speak to her. And if she touches a person, their past, present and future are revealed to her. 

But as the body count rises, and those closest to Tisha are drawn into the nightmare, Tisha’s only choice is to reach out to her estranged grandmother to learn more about her intuitive talents. In a race against the clock to rescue those in danger and solve the murders, she’ll need all her abilities. Even the gift she’s been afraid to use. The dead will speak, but only if she’s willing to listen. 

EXCERPT
“Ma’am what did you see?”

What the hell is a ma'am? I'm twenty-five not forty. People tell me I look young for my age and am forever getting ID’d when I go out to clubs. Ma’am is an over forty dowdy woman. I was dressed casually in dark jeans, black suede booties, a Free People long sweater with a contrasting tank and colorful infinity scarf that was quite chic.

“The same as him. It was at the Armstice Fence warehouse just before we got to the Bellerose Station. The men were arguing. One of them pulled out a gun and shot the other. I got to the conductor as soon as I could, but with the train moving I didn’t get much more than they both had long dark hair, had big mustaches and were both wearing dark jeans and black leather coats.”

“Okay, we're going to take you to the scene and wait for the detectives. You can give them your official statements.”

With that the officers led us down to the cruiser. I scooted into the backseat followed by Ms. Sven and then Sven. We raced through the streets making turns until we descended on the scene of the crime. Police cars, ambulances and policemen swarmed the area. Yellow tape was strung blocking off the end of the street. One of the officers told us to remain in the car. It was impossible to do anything but wait since there were no door handles. My stomach did flip-flops. A sickening feeling enveloped me when I thought about what I was about to see. I didn’t want to view the aftermath of the shooting. I hoped the dead guy’s eyes were closed. I couldn’t bear the thought of looking into dead eyes.

About the author:
Susan Peterson Wisnewski is an indie author from the northeast. She writes thrillers and paranormal with a sprinkling of chick lit and horror.

From a cruncher of numbers to a stringer of words, she decided it was time to follow her dreams and put down on paper all of those stories that floated around in her head. Raised in New York City and Long Island, she is a consummate shopaholic having been given the gift of style from her mother and grandmother. When not writing, she can be found shopping, visiting museums, gardening, or being walked by her oversized puppy.

Her books are a genre mix all neatly packaged together. Surprise and twists keep her readers guessing and she has been accused of writing books that can’t be put down. Pushing characters to challenges themselves is her trademark as is a creating strong female characters – no damsels in distress here. Her inspiration comes from seeing a situation and then enhancing it to create an unusual story line. And yes, she does see ghosts, or spirits as they prefer to be called and has had her run ins with a fairy or two.

If you have a book club and live on Long Island or in the Southern Vermont area, she’d be happy to come for a visit.
