The Camera Guy

Title ~ The Camera Guy
Author ~ R.W. Goodship
Publisher ~ R.W. Goodship
Published ~ 23 June 2011
Genre ~ Mystery/Paranormal

My Rating ~ 4.5 bites out of 5

Forensic Investigator Bill Walters sees dead people at his crime scene. Well, dead people and their spirits. He’s not sure why, but not only can he see ghosts, but he sees the final moments in the victims’ lives. His powers of observation are excellent, but the spirits have given him an edge and he doesn’t have an unsolved case. The other officers may think him loony toons, but his conviction rate is unparalleled.

When a new Chief Inspector takes over the department and wants Bill the crackpot out, he assigns Tom Watson, a psychologist, to observe Bill with an eye to dismissing him from the department. What the CI didn’t expect was for Tom to experience a different version of Bill’s gift (or curse depending on who you talk to). At the scene of a violent murder, instead of seeing the spirit Tom can feel her and the evil that killed her turning Tom’s world upside down and sideways. It only gets weirder from there.

This is a well-written story with an interesting fast plot, well-developed characters and a slippery villain leading us on a horribly gory chase. I enjoyed being along for the ride and I’m hoping to see more of Bill Walters.

  1. That cover so bothers me, really doesnt fit the blurb, but it does sound like a good read, Thanks for mentioning it to me

    1. The cross comes into it, but I'm not sure what the skull represents. Maybe the victims? You're welcome. I really enjoyed it.
