Today I am hosting part of the blog tour for Emma Clapperton’s latest book Beyond Evidence.
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 Patrick’s 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.

I am a big fan of paranormal books and while I am still not sure what I think of this book which uses the Mediums to solve murders. While I do believe that psychic events can happen this book put it out a bit further than what I was hoping.
Generally when I do psychic investigations books I want to have something that is less about the mysticism and more about the actual case with the backdrop of a Medium. I do believe that this book while it wasn’t the best I have read in paranormal it is also not the worst.
I can see a lot of potential in this book and with a series as well and I can see why others would really go in for it. This is just like watching the psionic style that comes with many fantasy novels. This is not a fantasy book however and while it does keep things attached pretty well I think that there is always room for improvement with this thing.
The characters I was not really happy with as they seemed like they were always fake. I do like the fact that it showed that the characters who had the psychic abilities also was the leader of a Church.
Would I read another of her novels the answer is yes I would. I see a lot of potential in her characters as well as her story telling.
