Kindred Spiritby John Passarella
Synopses & Reviews
Popular television reporter Hallie Moore seems to have it all. She's young, single, attractive, and her signature "best of" segments — Hallie's Comets — seem primed to send her career sky-high. Yet Hallie is haunted by the unsolved rape and murder of her identical twin, Heather. On the first anniversary of the brutal crime, Hallie visits her sister's memorial and — suddenly, inexplicably — experiences her twin's memories of the murder.
Convinced she's been touched by Heather's spirit, Hallie recalls the near telepathic bond the two shared during childhood. Is it possible that bond persists — even from beyond the grave? Compelled to solve her twin's murder, Hallie finds herself drawn to Heather's husband and six-year-old son and, unknowingly, puts herself into the killer's lethal orbit. For in his twisted mind, he believes he's been given a chance to commit the perfect murder...again.
"Stoker Award — winning horror novelist Passarella (Wither) brings a paranormal twist to this thriller about a television reporter probing the murder of her twin. On the first anniversary of Heather's slaying, her identical twin sister, Hallie Moore, revisits the crime scene and unexpectedly taps into her sister's final memories, seeing the attack through Heather's eyes. Hallie becomes more than haunted by Heather's spirit, recalling their childhood talent for communicating telepathically. Driven to solve the slaying, Hallie pursues several angles, including ghost research and hypnosis, while spiraling ever closer to danger, in the process neglecting her job and distressing Heather's surviving husband and son. A meticulous researcher, Passarella deftly interweaves Hallie's crisis of identity with her investigation. The early revelation of the killer's identity (from his viewpoint) can frustrate, as the reader watches Hallie make obvious mistakes despite all her unearthly assistance. Still, Passarella offers enough tension and fresh twists to make this a strong entry in the evolving field of cross-genre suspense.
