Spectacle by Jodie Lynn Zdrok

Zdrok’s debut novel Spectacle follows the story of aspiring journalist Nathalie Baudin, who has only just started writing the morgue column for the local newspaper. Her career begins just as a new serial killer emerges in Paris, and this also marks the beginning of a strange new ability:

visions of the murders through the killer’s eyes. Nathalie’s visions inadvertently drag her into a growing mystery which takes unexpected twists and turns as she discovers not only who the

person is terrorizing the young women of Paris, but also why she has this ability.

In a unique blend of paranormal and historical fiction, Zdrok weaves an intriguing, ominous story following a unique heroine in a tale that, quite honestly, kept me on my toes the entire time.
