    "What was the most important life-changing thing that ever happened to you?" This seemingly innocent question by his son sends Alex Drummond on a rough journey through his past. Remembering awful, sad, but also inspiring events, he tells a stunning coming-of-age story which also explains why he chose to become a homicide detective.At a young age, Alex discovered that he can see how people died by touching any object they touched while dying. Through their eyes, he experiences their last living moments, which in case of murder means that he can see first-hand who is the murderer. As if his life with a drunken stepfather, an equally mean stepbrother and a mother who won't stand up for him aren't enough, this discovery leads to a whole new load of trouble. Curse of gift? While Alex struggles to decide what this ability means for his life, he learns the gruesome truth about several suspicious deaths in his neighborhood and even his own family.I read that this book was previously published as several short episodes, which are now combined into one complete novel. This explains the fast order in which events follow one another. There is no time to lean back and think about what's happening, because another bad thing is waiting just around the next page. While I enjoyed racing through the chapters, I would have appreciated some breathing time, even some uneventful filler lines between each episodes. As it was, the frequency with which Alex had to face new challenges was unbelievably fast, as far as you can use the adjective 'believable' with a story about a spiritually gifted man... Also, some of the visions seemed too convenient, making me wonder about the possibility of Alex touching especially that fence or coming across the homeless man with the backpack at just the right time.At the end, everything fell into place easily, though at a devastating and very sad price. As the title suggests, this book paves the way for further stories. Providing a solid background for the main character, the reader is cleverly enticed to further follow Alex to see how he comes to terms with his ability and how he learns to control and live with the consequences.(Thanks to the author and Booklover Catlady Publicity for providing a copy of this book in return for an honest review)
