Kathy is not like any vigilante crime fighter you've seen in recent novels. She's different, more deadly in a way that is not physical. She's a psychic. And with the help of another psychic even greater than herself, she'll track down those responsible for crime in her town, specifically the kidnapping and murder of children, and put an end to their terror. R.T. Broughton will pull you into a dark place in Approaching Zero and, just like those kids, you'll hope against all odds that Kathy will save the day. But is it possible when someone starts blocking her much needed powers?
Three words: riveting, unique, and edge of your seat. (Yes, that last one is a few too many.) This is my favorite crime thriller of the year so far! R.T. Broughton has written Kathy with such detail that she avoids the common problem with super powered heroines: being too impersonal. She is somehow realistic, even with her gift, and we enjoy rooting for her even when we think she's in over her head. The setting is also well depicted and really pulls you in. And even the side characters have depth, which can be difficult to achieve. I think this boils down to the fact that Approaching Zero has a darn good author at the helm. I look forward to seeing more from this writer even outside the thriller genre. I think there's natural talent here that would succeed in any setting. Overall, this is a home run for me and I would highly recommend delving into the dark delight that is Approaching Zero.
