Craven by Melanie Casey is the second in the series to feature Cass Lehman, and follows directly on from Hindsight.
Just a reminder that Cass has retrocognition, and when she occupies the space where a person has died, she experiences a detailed vision of their death and in particular how they died.
Since then, Cass has left home, started a new job and is living in the city of Adelaide looking for a fresh start. Cass makes a welcomed new friend in Claire however she's also acquired a creepy stalker and soon needs to call on Ed for his assistance.
I loved the character development in Craven and in particular seeing Cass achieve her independence and leave the protective cocoon of her family. It was also refreshing to discover (along with Cass) more about her gift and how she can use it.
In summary, Craven can be read as a mystery and crime novel and has an unmistakeable Australian feel. I thoroughly enjoyed immersing myself in Cass' life once again and I really hope there's another planned in the series.
My rating = ****
