I felt lucky to visit an old friend last week. CHEATED BY DEATH was made available, finally! In the third Jeff Resnick book, he makes contact some long-lost relatives, and wonders if he should have. Someone is out to get the workers at the women's health clinic where Brenda, his sister-in-law, is working. She'd love to finish up the week, then take time off, because she's looking forward to a blessed event. Jeff knows something bad about the future, though. And someone else is out to get Brenda. It also bothers Jeff that his half-brother, Richard, is holding something back from him. And Richard is one of the few people Jeff gets no psychic readings from. He's groping in the dark to find solutions to problems that seem to have no shape.

I wanted more Jeff Resnick and the author delivered with a bang! The characters that I love are back and again, Jeff is in the thick of things trying to protect his loved ones. Who is trying to harm Brenda? What about those dreams? All these questions kept me riveted to the pages until the last sentence. The author has a few surprises for us including an OMG! moment and the suspense was exhilarating. This is an awesome read and I can't wait to read the next Jeff Resnick story.
