I didn't know this novel or this series is about the psychic police and FBI agents dealing with evil guy(s) with similar power. Otherwise, I wouldn't pick it up at all.
Without the confine of the law of physics or science as a whole, the author can quite easily make up things or change things to whatever she wants. Somehow, the author doesn't make his psychic agents infinitely powerful. But the limits of the power of those psychic agents seem to me to be arbitrarily set. If they had infinite power, there would be no story or effort to fight the evil guys. To me, it's like a soccer game that the players can use their hands to play !
In the novel, I've read more than once something like : "Energy can't be destroyed, only transformed." such as p.178 (lines 17-18). This is like the law of conservation of energy. This makes me giggle a bit because the author tries to stick to a law of physics here while her psychics can somehow communicate with the dead and with each other just because one has donated blood to the other. It'd be the most interesting if the author just breaks every law of physics, rather than arbitrarily some of them when it's convenient.
At the end, Chief Jonah Riggs suddenly remembered that he saved all 6 victims and then he was told that he's a latent psychic/empath. Suddenly, Jonah realized that the bad psychic was Sebastian Gettys. And suddenly, the bad psychic jumped into the room and killed Dante Swann and got himself killed. It's just so arbitrary and artificial. I feel that we didn't get to know Dante well and he just died. Everything and everyone was not even more than a piece in a chess game.
I don't think I'll ever want to read any more of the "Bishop/Special Crimes Unit" series again....Continua
