FBI Paranormal Thriller
Special Agent Jamaica Kurtz first assignment after returning from a six month long medical leave was supposed to be a simple one. She was to run a psychological profile of two dead terrorists. She was assured by her superiors that the two killers weren't linked. They were wrong. Adjusting to her newly developed clairvoyant abilities she doesn't know whether it is a blessing or a curse. A trail of seemingly insignificant breadcrumbs that no one else sees reveals a truth the Central Intelligence Agency doesn't want found--a truth that dates back to the Cold War era and to one of its forgotten secrets. Unexpectedly showing up at Kurtz's door is her best friend, CIA Analyst Rosetta Calendar. She insists on aiding Kurtz with her assignment but Calendar's actual motives are more subversive in nature.
Ex-thief, former orphan Larry David (LD) Westerman left his past behind a long time ago. He now works as a Guidance Counselor in Detroit. He was happy with his life. That was until he was drugged, restrained and thrown into the back of a van, driven hundreds of miles to New York without knowing why or by whom. After escaping his captors with expert killer proficiency, a dark veil begins to rise from over his unconsciousness. He is not the man he thought he was—far from it in fact. Hunted by the government, Westerman forcibly enlists New York police detective Raymond Kilgore to help him discover the truth and to destroy those that created him.
Their perilous journey leads them to the Friday House, a seemingly run of the mill orphanage. They discover quickly that it is far more than what it pretends to be. With no other choice, they go headlong into the belly of the beast to do whatever they can to avert the greatest threat the United States has ever faced—itself.
Coffee Time Romance
I liked this follow up to XIII by D.K. Gaston. It answered many questions about this character that had been left hanging. D. K. Gaston writes an amazing thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I love the way Jamaica changes as she develops her skills. She had a long road ahead and could only take things one at a time. I love strong characters and they were abundant in this story. This book stood out to me for that very reason. It is very good, but for the most impact, XIII should be read first.

The Friday House by D.K. Gaston is an action-packed thriller. It starts out simply enough with two seemingly unconnected terrorist attacks on American soil. FBI agent Jamaica Kurtz is given the assignment of profiling the two dead terrorists. Her ability to handle the task is questioned as she's just come off a long medical leave. Aided by instinct and newly discovered clairvoyant abilities, she discovers a trail linking the two terrorists with the Friday House, an orphanage still in operation. A sinister trail that leads all the way to the White House.
The characters are realistic and the author uses their frailties well in advancing the plot. While the reader might initially believe they've figured out the connection, the story is tightly woven so that only at the end do we get to the truth. An entertaining read, I give this book four stars.
