5.0 out of 5 stars A child snatch brings together a psychic and a beautiful cop Feb. 22 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Michael Pansesivic is selecting a toy for himself when his mother
leaves him alone to go to another store. When she returns, Michael is
missing. The police investigate the case as if it is another child
abduction even though there is no evidence to indicate that a family member took
the child. They base their conclusion on the fact that Michael's
parents were in the middle of a custody battle. Psychic Carpenter Paul
Arnussen enters the investigation by claiming to have had a flash vision of Michael
living underground in an area near a large chicken. The police
including Detective Jackie Kaminsky dismiss the man as a nut.
Soon Paul becomes the prime suspect. Jackie finds it tough
treating Paul as a suspect because she is very attracted to him, but
she does not intend to allow her feelings to interfere with solving the
case. When a double homicide is committed with Paul being the only
one on the premises, Jackie is forced to arrest him. His explanation
seems implausible, but if Jackie takes the rational course that she is
trained to follows, it is possible that the real killer and kidnapper will go free.
Margot Dalton follows in the footsteps of Sandra Brown, successfully making
the transition from romance to romantic suspense with an ease that will dub her
as one of the rising stars in the sub-genre. There is another Jackie Kaminsky novel
being published next year and it is this reviewer's fervent belief that it will not be the
last because the genre needs an influx of new talent that will raise its standard of
excellence to an even higher level of quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL DETECTIVE STORY. MORE! MORE! PLEASE! Nov. 4 2000
By "virgie" - Published on Amazon.com
Detective Jackie Kaminsky is on a child kidnapping case. Unfortunately, there isn't a lot to go on. It happened in a mall broad daylight, with no witnesses/clues whatsoever. Further investigation reveals that the parents were in a custody battle, yet neither seems to have him. When carpenter Paul Arnussen comes forward to help the police by citing his psychic episode, he rockets to the top of their very short list. This is a whodunnit story steeped in police procedures, featuring a cop that cares--even if her own life ain't no bed of roses. I'll definitely look forward to seeing more of Jackie Kaminsky. I'd also recommend ALL of J.D. Robb's works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank Goodness for Something Different! April 9 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Thank goodness for something different--the Jackie books go counter to the trend of unrealistic heroines who are supposedly tough and vulnerable, but are basically phony. Jackie is tough. Jackie is vulnerable. And best of all, Jackie is real. What a treat to read about a heroine who isn't Superwoman in a story that is really a story.

5.0 out of 5 stars First time reader April 17 2005
By Jody Lynn - Published on Amazon.com
I've never read one of Margot Daltons books before. I couldn't put it down. The main character is very likeable. I'm especially excited because I've found a new "series" to read. I've already ordered the next two books in the series.
