Beyond Evidence by Emma L Clapperton

41461a-upyL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_“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?”

Ghosts. Pah! No such thing, right?  Well that’s my standpoint anyway.  I am a sceptic. However when I read the blurb of this book I thought “why not?  I’m an open-minded kinda girl”.  And who doesn’t love a serial killer thriller?  I’m glad I did because I enjoyed this book and have the utmost respect for Emma L Clapperton as a self published author.

There is a serial killer loose in Glasgow.  The number of murdered young women is on the rise and strange things are happening to bar worker Patrick.  Patrick is psychic.  The love of his life, Jodie, is also a psychic but when the spirits of the dead woman start communicating with the couple things start getting scary.

It’s a race against time to catch the killer before Jodie becomes one of his victims.  There are twists and turns to keep you hooked.  I enjoyed the writing style and warmed to Patrick quite early on.  I kept wanting to pick the book up to read it and that in my opinion is always the sign of a good story.

This is the first novel in the Patrick McLaughlin series and I will be adding book two to my TBR soon.

Three out of five stars.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you Emma L Clapperton and the THE Book Club for the opportunity to read it.
