Death at Deacon Pond by E.M. Alexander

 

Genre:  Mystery

Age Level:  14 and up

# of pages: 189 p.

RAC Book:  Yes

Kerri believes that she has psychic visions from time to time, many of which include visions of her now deceased father who died under mysterious circumstances.  Her father, a police officer, was believed to have killed himself, but everything Kerri believes coupled with her psychic visions tells her otherwise.  Unfortunately, no one wanted to hear about her psychic visions at the time and the experience was so painful she has tried to block them out ever since.

Kerri’s luck does not improve as she accidentally stumbles over a body in the woods one night.  She believes the man looked at her and asked for help before she passed out.  The police confirm that he was murdered, but several hours before Kerri found him which means he couldn’t have talked to her.  Kerri decides to use her powers for good and tries to investigate the crime more carefully.  She is convinced her visions will help her solve the murder and maybe give her some closure on her father’s case as well.

This book has an exciting ending, but it seems a bit rushed at times as the mytery unfolds and ties everything neatly together.  Also, it is a little ambiguous as to how much help her visions actually were in the solving of this crime.  There is some closure given to the characters at the end, but it still seems a little unclear as to how everyone around her can move on so easily after everything they have been through.  Fans of mysteries will enjoy it, but don’t expect too much depth or surprise.
