You’re where you’re meant to be. Run, if you can.
High school senior Jenny Gallagher’s psychic abilities have made life in her small New England town rocky. Her premonitions and déjà vu have given her a reputation, one she’s not happy with. Tragedy is about to strike, however, and oddly, this time, she doesn’t see it coming. Is her gift betraying her?
Not far from Jenny, Wellesley Professor Maximus Dyer also has a gift—a painful and useless one. His ability to see the past has brought him insight into history, but otherwise, he’s never known what to make of it. The psychic shocks he receives through his unprotected hands have made any genuine human relationships beyond his grasp. Then someone who doesn’t trigger a vision enters his life—a dog?
Sidrah Keeling runs determinedly optimistic throughout her life, trying hard not to ask the big questions about why. Her foresight, her ability to see glimpses of the future in her dreams, often drives her to follow a path she doesn’t understand. Alert and listening, with the guardrails of security she’s erected in place, she’s forced again to follow her dreams. This time to a man. Who is he?
Lurking deep in his sensory deprivation tank, Turner Black sees it all. Born out of the great chaos of time, he once again feels the forces of good gathering to move against him. Not in this life. This time, his darkness will reign supreme. The hunt for his antithesis will begin again now. He can’t wait to feel his opponent in destiny bleed.
A fast-paced contemporary mystery thriller with a supernatural hierarchy, Dead Cat, Run will keep you up all night, glued to your seat.

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from iRead Book Tours. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
Jenny, Max, and Sidrah each believe that they are the only ones with supernatural abilities. When they find each other, or maybe they are brought together by some unknown force, they instantly become a family. They are so relieved to be able to share their abilities and not have to hide who they are. There is also my favorite character, Bones, the dog who attaches herself to Max. Bones is adorable and the smartest dog ever and is part of the team.
I say team because this group is a good force, and they are faced with the dark force of Turner Black. They know that Jenny is in danger and do everything to keep her safe. How long can this go on? Will evil win or will good triumph?
Dead Cat, Run is difficult to put down once you start it. It is a must read for anyone who enjoys thrillers of good vs. evil. It does stand alone, but I’m looking forward to reading the next book, Cut and Run.

Hello and thank you so much for taking the time to read my book. I’m thrilled you enjoyed it and I too love my puppy character, Bones! Where in the world did she come from? 😉 I guess we’ll have to wait and see. The second book in the series is out – Cut and Run – and I’m working on writing the third. Love your website. Thanks for making such a nice home and sharing your talents for writers and readers. Warm regards, Annabelle Lewis
