Beyond Evidence

Beyond Evidence by Emma L. Clapperton

Book Blurb
In an alley way of the back streets of Glasgow there lies a decomposing corpse of a slain female baking in the midday heat. No one has found her yet, but medium Patrick McLaughlin knows she is there. It is not the first time he has dreamt of death... and he soon finds out that it is not to be the last.

Meanwhile, the local police start to request DNA samples from twenty something men in the bustling city of Glasgow where several bizarre murders have taken place.

Through a hunch and in the belief that the terrifying dreams hold the key to the identity of the murderer, Patrick works alongside the police to track down the predator before they can strike again. 

The nightmares do not ease up and begin to tear at Patricks sanity and in the midst of the investigation, at what cost would Patrick have to pay to stop the killer striking again?
His friends?
His family?
His life?

My Review
Patrick can see ghost he has had this ability for as long as he could remember. It made him different from other kids but he found someone similar to him in the form of Josie a kid with the similar abilities. They formed a friendship that lead them to be together always. Patrick begins to see haunting spirits as an adult that leads him to believe they are the ghost of the girls who are being murdered. While he sets up to help to police catch a killer, he doesn't realize the killer may be stalking him. 

 This is a very good murder story with some paranormal in it as Patrick can see the ghost and they play a big part of the story. You know who the killer is but you really get to see inside his head and what made him want to kill these women. He is truly a sick individual who needs to be stopped. While at times I did feel sorry for him I couldn't understand in a way why he blamed only women. Patrick and Josie are an amazing couple and you root for them all through the book. They belong together and you can tell it. If your are looking for a dark murder story with some paranormal and lots of secrets pick this up. Emma Clapperton did a great job pulling you in and seeing all sides of the case. Both from the good guy and the bad.
