Do you want to know what it's like to die, to kill, to really fear for your life? Then get hooked...Detroit-based homicide detective John Barnes has seen it all--literally. Thanks to a technologically advanced brain machine, detectives have access to the memories of the living, the dying, and the recently dead. But extracting victims' experiences firsthand and personally reliving everything up to the final, brutal moments of their lives--the sights, the sounds, the scents, the pain--is also the punishment reserved for the criminals themselves.Barnes has had enough. Enough of the memories that aren't his. Enough of the horror. Enough of the voices inside his head that were never meant to take root...until a masked serial killer known as Calavera strikes a little too close to home.Now, with Calavera on the loose, Barnes is ready to reconnect, risking his life--and his sanity. Because in the mind of this serial killer, there is one secret even Barnes has yet to see...

I did not enjoy this book. The writing was bland, and it was kind of confusing at times when the MC was hearing/projecting the voices in his head. I would not recommend this to anyone. 👎👎👎

This one was a #kindlefirst #amazonfirstreads pick sometime last year. Finally started in on it last night. After a crazy day at work where nothing went my way, I'm tempted to just call it a night (it's not even 7pm yet). I may try to get a few chapters in before nodding off. I'm just so wiped out and still fighting a cold with a horrible sinus headache. 😴😷🤧

Starting this next... inadvertently bailed on Queen of the Night by canceling Amazon Prime. I was reading that one on Prime reads. Oops. I'll have to finish that one up at the library. #blondemoment

Hey listen. I wanted to like this. I really did. And some twists and turns toward the end almost made the terrible journey worthwhile. Almost.

Holliday‘s attempts at female characterization are so abhorrent they can be used as an example of what NOT to do. The romance in this thriller is so forced, that alone almost caused this to be a DNF. The real sin is the world building. Which...doesn‘t actually exist at all. You can skip this one, trust me.

#currentlyreading I‘m over 50% done and so far? Not good.

DGRachel Well, that‘s disappointing. I think I had planned to use this for one of the PopSugar challenge prompts. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Welcome to Litsy! 14mo
luciferist It‘s super rushed and the pacing is really awkward. The author seems really attached to weirdly placed nostalgia too lol And thank you!! 14mo

Dark, and gruesome, and fascinating. Couldn't put it down, A very thought-provoking futuristic police procedural. Waiting for more.
