Taking a chance, Cass volunteers to assist Detective Ed Dyson with the investigation. Will Cass be able to save the latest victim... and herself?

Hindsight is the first in a crime thriller series featuring Cass Lehman and Detective Ed Dyson.

Australian Book Review (ABR)

"Gripping... conventional in the best way, this confient debut will have readers awake long into the night."

The Morning Show

"For anyone who loves Medium"

The Advertiser

"... crippled by a supernatural gift over which she has no control... horror - with its echoes of Greek mythology... Strong characterisation makes for a promising start to a planned series."

Samara Magazine

"...the book was well written and highly entertaining. A beach read or one to take on a long trip, certainly engrossing and one that keeps the readers interest...the consistent writing allows one to become engrossed. You don’t even realise the plot has a hold of you until you realise there is barely any of the book left."

Book'd Out

"The plot is well crafted...combining crime fiction with an interesting paranormal element and a touch of romance... I’d particularly recommend it those who find the genre mix appealing and who might have liked Charlaine Harris's Harper Connelly series."
