Dead people who seem to want her aid much to the consternation of her boyfriend who has just started work for the local CIDT 5 Masterfully Written Stars I have waited at least a year maybe two for Flashes to be published I as well as Tim's other fans shared the joy with him when he signed with the major publishing company Chicken House To say thanks for having such dedicated fans Tim acknowledged us in FlashesThat's 3 pages of fans that he included Tim is such a kind and kick ass author author Thanks TimFlashes begins with heartache for a seventeen year old girl named Charlie Unimaginable pain consumes her But she doesn't have much time to recover because the flashes take over She has nobody to turn to and her father believes her to be delusional Charlie feels people think of her as a freak because of the flashes she experiences It is such a burden for her to bare and physically painful She comes to a point where she either continues to deny her gift or embrace it She has an unbearable urge to prove that her flashes are real to her father and a new handsome detective yumm who comes into town named TomOnce again as always I full heartedly loved this story Tim O'Rourke is in a league of his own Flashes was written so well that I felt I was an invisible bystander I felt horrible for what Charlie has to endure when here flashes occur The gruesomeness that she has to live through and witness were hard to get through because it is so painful I enjoyed reading about Tom and having a sneak peak into a detective's life on the job Even though I wanted to punch one of his obnoxious coworkers in the nose He is such an assIs there anything I would change about this e book? Ummyeah THAT IT ENDED Flashes ended on the hugest cliffhanger It was the king of all cliffhangers It sat there on top of that damn cliff mocking me Urging me to throw my I pad against the wall Luckily King Cliffhanger didn't win I have some self control and I remembered that 'Flashes Part 2 Tom's Story' will be out in May Not long now yippee Until we meet again King CliffhangerMy favorite line out of Flashes This time I held onto any branch shrub or piece of railway furniture that I could find to stop myself falling arse over tit again Tom Hahaarse over tit Love it

Flashes His is the full paperback novel which was originally released in three separate parts over the course of three months via ebo Flashes was OK I liked the idea of the crime solving aspects of those flashes it was unfortunately very predictable I guessed who the murderer was around page 70 which is uite unusual for me and the rest of the book felt like an endless wait for the main characters to finally understand who the wrongdoer was The fact that the plot was so predictable is the reason for me giving this book only two stars
