In He's Alive by Linda M. Williams, after Jordyn Gilbert witnessed her twin brother's death in a school bus collision, she discovered a hidden gift as a medium. When the spirit of her twin visited her as she recovered from the accident, she promised him she would use her gift to help others. From that moment on she transformed into JJ. Ten years later, while visiting her brother's grave, she was given the opportunity to keep that promise when she hears a strange voice stating: "He’s alive." The voices continue and the spirit entity is so strong it pushes JJ over the edge until she has no choice but to solve this mystery. The only person she can turn to for help is her old school friend Luke, and together they uncover the identity of the spirit and the shocking truth behind the message. JJ faces hostility and threats as she investigates a crime that has gone unsolved for years. Will she discover the spirit missing son is alive? Someone’s life depends on it.
This is a fantastic concept for a story line and the author has executed the plot with sensitivity and knowledge of her subject. There are many twists and turns throughout the plot as JJ tries to uncover the identity of the son. I was gripped by the fast moving, exciting investigation by JJ and Luke. The conflict and tension throughout kept my attention and it was perfectly paced out throughout the story. The characters were all created with great detail and a fantastic backstory which was evident in the dialogue. The lead character, JJ, was a good, strong female protagonist who also had a caring compassionate side. The whole novel had a beautiful blend of sadness, excitement and tension. The ending couldn’t have been better written.
