A good thriller with a great narrator
Reviewed in the United States on September 29, 2021
Nate Russo, a man with psychic abilities, has been working with the FBI on a series of women and girls who have gone missing and been found buried alive. He pays a very high price for this gift - he feels everything the victim feels. The search for this killer has led Nate back home, to Johnstown, New York, where he first received his "gift" from the spirit living in his house that he calls "The Boneman." In order to save the latest victim, Nate must come face to face with The Boneman.
I will be honest and admit that what originally caught my eye was the fact that Joshua Jackson was the narrator. Like most women my age, I spent time watching Dawson's Creek and was a huge Pacey fan. All that being said, Josh did a great job narrating the story and making you feel that Nate's gift wasn't all it was cracked up to be. I would gladly listen to other books narrated by Josh.
Oracle was a well-told story that always kept me guessing. There were many times where Nate believed he knew who the killer was only to discover that The Boneman had made it look that way. I was not expecting the ending and really enjoyed the twist. I would gladly read another Andrew Pyper thriller.
