Psychometry is a psychic power which allows one to divine from holding or touching items. Visions of the past, present and some times the future are laid out before them.
Kevin has this power but hesitates to use it. He meets Candace and falls in love with her just before he starts his career as a policeman with hope of becoming a detective in homicide—his gift the motivating factor. When it comes to a crime against Candace, he must use his gift to save her from great harm or even death by the hand of a killer who wants revenge against Kevin.
This story has an interesting premise and Jennifer Robins has moved into new territory with this Psychic short story. The hero’s ability to see things when he touches objects is both interesting and adds a new depth to this piece, adding to that his new job as a policeman and you know you are in for an interesting story. The story itself is enjoyable and the characters are likable.
The main problem with the story is the constant head hopping. I wasn’t sure from one moment to the next whose point of view I was in. In fact Kevin’s abilities make me as a reader wish that the whole story was just told from his viewpoint.
