FBI Agent Bernadette Saint Clare is on a baffling case. While some of the women are believed to be committing suicide, she thinks otherwise, and is determined to find answers before any more women are killed.
Tony Garcia knows Bernadette has a special ability, one that she received after her twin sister was killed in a drunken driving accident. It does not bother him. Her psychic talent has a way of often helping unsolved cases.
Bernadette realizes the scariest thing about autumn in the Midwest is the water. In a period of six months, six college women have drowned in the Mississippi river. Students are beginning to demonstrate. Then out of the blue there is a turnabout, a woman turns up dead in a bathtub. Bernadette suspects none of it is suicide as predicted. Without some strong evidence to back up her calculation, her idea will be thrown out into the ballpark. Having a disobliging psychiatrist as one of her only leads, is not much to go on. With every power she can muster, she sets out to use her second sight, never realizing she could possibly uncover upsetting dark secrets. Garcia feels a strong attraction to Bernadette and believes in her. Not since the death of his wife has he had any serious relationships. He knows whoever is behind the crimes is a bad guy, the worst kind. All that is left is a tough loose end that needs to be tied up and Bernadette is the best tracker.
Terri Persons has created a suspenseful read that absolutely grips the reader until the last page. I was spellbound in Bernadette’s search for the serial killer. She is fascinating and does her job well. I loved the mixing in of the paranormal and the connection of Bernadette with someone in her past. Blind Rage is solid and action-packed. The pacing in the story keeps the read moving at a good pace to not lose the reader. I was caught up in the moment trying to find the culprit, right along with Bernadette. I also like the interaction with Garcia and Bernadette. This compelling read gets the adrenaline pumping.
