Reincarnation and Past Lives. Can we live more than one life?

 

 

 

I have always had an interest in the supernatural and the possibility of reincarnation. It’s a theme that runs through my three latest books. Writing them allowed me to explore topics such as past lives, possession and reincarnation within the thriller genre. My fourth novel, The Liar’s Promise, explores the apparent reincarnation of a murdered teenage girl. She is four years old in this life, and seems to know what happened in the lead up to the murder and how she died.

 

 

Reincarnation is a topic that has been studied in the academic world. Dr. Ian Stevenson (October 31, 1918 – February 8, 2007), a psychiatrist at the University of Virginia, was a pioneer in the field. He spent the last 40 years of his life researching reincarnation claims. He documented 3,000+ cases of people who remembered past lives. He was able to verify the facts and claims in approximately one third of these cases.

BLOG TOUR – Orchestrating Murder by Heather Osborne

 

I’m delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for the brilliant crime thriller, Orchestrating Murder, by Heather Osborne. Let’s find out more about the book.

 

Book Description:
By day, he wears a mask, concealing his true nature from the world. By night, he conducts his plans, carefully composing death for those deemed less worthy in his eyes of existence.

When bodies of convicted felons start turning up, Detective Gregory Shaw is called upon to investigate. His suspicions fall on a well-known attorney, but can he prove his hunch holds merit?

 

 

 

And, here’s the book trailer:

 

 

 

My review:
After enjoying Osborne’s Rae Hatting series, I was very pleased to see that she’d published this stand-alone thriller.

The book kicks off with a very tense opening.  After the prologue, you’ll want to keep reading the whole book in one go!

Parts of the book are written from the antagonist’s point of view. Getting an in-depth insight into their thoughts and actions was chilling and disturbing. Occasional glimpses into the victims pain and uncertainty can, at times, be an uncomfortable reading experience, which is testament to the quality of the writing.

As in the Rae Hatting series, Osborne combines a complicated criminal investigation with a little romance. The elements work well, without the romance taking over the story. If there had been more romance than there was, it may have put me off the story, but Osborne gets the mixture just right.

I’d highly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys the crime/suspense/thriller genres. It’s an excellent read that will keep you guessing and wondering where the story will take you next.
