Excellent story and performance

Excellent story enhanced by an amazing performance. I really appreciated how different this book is from so many other psychological thrillers. Loved the supernatural twist. Very believable as written.

Great but much more intense

Listened to this in one day I couldn't put it down. I am listening to a lighter book next time as this was so intense. Will listen to book 5 on c e I can get this one to settle.

dynamite series

I love them all, especially the empowerment of women and a cgance for those psychically gifted to fit in and be able to use their gifts in the course of their job and daily life. I can't wait for the next installment

I recommend this one

I loved it it's a good story it helps you realize bad things happen in the world and you can overcome them no matter what as long as you have life you can live and be fruitful although the only thing I didn't like was the monotone of the female voice I think it would be better read by mail deep voice you can get into the characterizations better but once you start listening to the female voice you're okay but I think it would be better if it was read by a male

If you like unusual endings

Kay Hooper is a little talky in her beginnings but the unusual story line and the twist at the end always keeps me going. All in all an excellent mystery read.

Loved it!

It makes house go a lot easier, I love reading but if I sit down to read that is all I would get done and once you pick up one of Kay Hoopers books they are hard to put down after starting.

Very exciting. Lots of twist and turns.

Where does Touching Evil rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book is towards the top of the list of books I would read

Who was your favorite character and why?

Maggie was my favorite. She had that mysterious, creepy and gentle sprit that pulled me in.

Which scene was your favorite?

When the pregnant women was taken and killed. Very graphic scene.

Any additional comments?

This book was pretty good. I liked the unpredictability that some of the book offered but the end was predicable as most books are. The book intrigued me enough to want to read more books in this series. I would recommend this book for those that like creepy, unexplained, supernatural mixed with police detective. I really liked this book
