Demoted to the cold case squad after shooting a suspect in the line of duty, Detective Ronan O’Mara knows that his career with the Boston Police Department is hanging by a thread. His first assignment is the case of Michael Frye, a five-year-old boy who has been missing for seven years. With no new leads or witnesses to interview, Ronan has to start from scratch to solve this mystery. When he sees a handsome local psychic on television, Ronan figures he’s got nothing to lose in enlisting the man’s help to find Michael.
Psychic Tennyson Grimm is riding high after helping South Shore cops find a missing child. He’s even being courted by the Reality Show Network about a program showcasing his abilities. He has no idea that his midday appointment with a customer, who instead turns out to be a police detective, is going to change the course of his life and his career.
With the blessing of the BPD, which badly needs an image make-over, Ronan is allowed to bring Tennyson in to assist with the Frye case. Being thrown together in front of cameras is never easy, but add in an emotional missing person’s investigation, a tight-lipped spirit, and a cop who’s a skeptic, and it definitely puts a strain on both men and their working relationship.
When the child’s body is found, the work to identify his killer begins. As Ronan and Tennyson get closer to solving the case, the initial attraction they feel for one another explodes into a passion neither man can contain.
Will working together to bring Michael’s killer to justice seal their fledgling bond, or will unexpected revelations in the case tear them apart forever?
Dead Speak is Book One of the Cold Case Psychic Series. Book Two, Dead Reckoning, and Book Three, Dead Silent, will be available in the coming months.
I loved this book! We have a man who has lost his belief in everything and a man who believes in everything! Together, they compliment each other so beautifully!
Ronan is a divorced detective who has been demoted to cold case work. Out of desperation, he reaches out to a psychic to help him find a missing boy. He doesn’t really believe, but quickly sees and feels things he can’t explain.
Tennyson came into his gift as he hit puberty, he’d also realized he was gay around the same time. His uber religious family don’t approve of either thing. Ten leaves Home after High School and makes a new family and life in Salem, Massachusetts. The only thing missing is love.
When Ro and Ten meet, I was so excited by their chemistry! This story has some tough things to read, anytime you deal with crimes against children...it’s heartbreaking. Ms. Pine does this with respect and compassion, exactly as it should be handled. I was so into this book throughout the whole story! I went back and bought book 0 and have pre-ordered book 2! Clearly, I highly recommend this book!
It’s soooo good!!!
