Idolum ~ Review

Idolum by Tracee Ford
Publication Date: August 30, 2013
Re-Publisheed: March 15, 2014
((IDOLUM is now discontinued due to Tracee leaving her former publisher. Taking it's place is VOICE OF THE DEAD. They are pretty much the same book with only slight changes.))
Dr. Lauren Harris, a brilliant and nationally respected forensic psychologist, is called upon by the FBI to help track down and stop the The Phantom, a hedonistic serial killer who is burying his victims alive. She is teamed up with Nicholas Bennette, an agent who has been promoted to the directorship of a Southwestern Ohio field office. They find it difficult to work with one another at first, but as time passes a romance blooms. Lauren has a special secret. She's an empath and to solve the crime, she must not only rely on her training and education, but also her supernatural abilities. Through her visions she can see through the eyes of the victims and hopes to give a voice to the dead, peace to their families, and ultimately stop the killings. However, making sense of the visions proves to be one of the most difficult challenges she faces. Lauren is sometimes overwhelmed by the victims' feelings that so much in their lives have been left undone. As time passes and the body count rises, Lauren fits the puzzle together and discovers the identity of the killer. She soon learns she too has been targeted by The Phantom and comes face to face with him. When Lauren Harris finds herself at his mercy, she realizes she’s left much undone in her own life.

Genre: Fiction, Paranormal, Suspense

Below is my beloved signed copy!

Idolum is full of mystery & suspense with a quirky mix of sass & romance. Dr. Lauren Harris is the equivalent to Temperance "Bones" Brennan (Bones' forensic anthropologist) + Allison DuBois (Medium's consultant to the district attorney who happens to be a medium for those who have passed on) + Melinda Gordon (Ghost Whisperer's medium who just wants to live a normal life while helping earthbound spirits find closure & cross over)+ Criminal Mind's FBI profilers all in one. Her world gets completely turned upside down when Nicholas Bennette comes to town to help solve this serial murder case. The family bound Harris' family shares was magnificent! They made you feel like you were there with them through each moment, celebration, & gathering. I really LOVED this book!!

*There is some violence in this book due to the serial killer theme, but it was not overly descriptive even for me. I felt it was tastefully done & added to the story's intensity.
