    I received this audio book in exchange for an honest review.This is book #2 in a series (note to self, check the book 1st doah!)The characters in this book had been well established in the previous book however it did not stop my enjoyment of it. Narration was very good and the characters all had their separate voices that were easy to distinguish.This is a paranormal book which usually isn't my thing but I thought I would give it a try after I had just started the EIT series and hoped that it would be similar, which it is .....sort of.The book was creepy enough to keep me entertained and I'll probably seek out the first book to read sometime.

    This book had potential. Sadly, the main characters left their personalities in the first book of the series. Given more depth,I think it would have been much more enjoyable..excluding the multiple eye-rolling moments. I received a copy from Audible in exchange for an honest review. I'm sorry I couldn't give it more stars.

    Dead, Sometimes: Jason Callahan Psychic Detective, Book 2 by Patricia Lee Macomber. Performed/Narrated by Steven Jay Cohen. 6 hours 8 minutes, unabridged book. Series: Jason Callahan, Book 2. Genre: Modern Detective, Suspense, Thriller, Paranormal. I really enjoyed this listen. This book by Patricia Lee Macomber was such a light book of the paranormal in this modern detective story that even teenagers could enjoy this listen. When I started to listen to this book I found myself diving right in from the start. This is one of the books that you want to listen to from start to finish. Wish I could have but did listen in 3 sessions. Headphones on and then I found myself inside the book like sitting at a movie theater. Sitting back and watching the scenes unfold. What I really enjoyed was that Patricia did not go overboard with the details. Just the right amount for the scenes she was writing about. You knew at most times what the characters were thinking and going to do in certain scenes. Found myself wanting to say, ”Don’t go in there, don’t be foolish. You know what is going to happen to you.” Not that it was obvious just that each scene was clear as to what was going on. So now moving into the book itself. There is 4 main characters. Of course, Jason Callahan, the detective, his side partner psychic Trina Dane, Chloe Marsh and the Entity. Trina pulls Jason in on a case that she feels, is drawn into by her psychic powers that this woman Chloe Marsh that was pronounced dead at the scene of an accident and then hours later sits up and is alive. The more and more awake she becomes Chloe starts developing these special powers. Jason reluctantly agrees to head off to Florida to rest Trina’s concerns are going to be unfounded. Unfounded they were not. Jason gets so pulled into the case, as he starts to find links to other similar cases across the country. How did Chloe get these powers? From the woman at the bar she knew? Asking her for a ride home when she locked her keys in her car. While heading home to get her spare key since and she did not live far from the bar the woman agreed to take her back to her car. Then all of the sudden the woman goes and pulls over and before Chloe realizes she is being attacked by her. The next thing Chloe finds herself waking up in the hospital being told that she was dead for several hours. She was a miracle. So everyone thought but, Chloe. In comes Jason and Trina starting their investigation surrounding this case.Jason and Trina find themselves in more than one way bonding with Chloe as friends and protectors. Trina is determined to get the Entity out of her once they have discovered through the investigation and what Chloe’s new found powers were. Chloe just wanted the powers and voices gone from her. Can Jason and Trina get to the heart of removing the Entity or spirit? What path will they need to go to get to the bottom of this case? Will they be able to save Chloe or will she have to die in order to destroy this Entity? This book will have you riveted. Not just from the story but, with the performance of Steven Jay Cohen. I have reviewed other books where the male narrators sometimes could pull off the female voices to a degree. Steven is the first that really nailed the dialect and the voices. I was in awe over this one. I find myself now wanting to listen and review the first book in the series. My thought is I hope that Steven Jay Cohen does the rest of the series. This book was provided to me by the author for an honest review. So all above is my sole thoughts on this book and no one has effected that outcome. Please like and comment on my review. Love to hear your thoughts as well.

    My Review This is the second book in the Jason Callahan series, in the first book, during the course of an investigation he meets the beautiful, flamboyant and psychic Trina Dane and together they solve the case. In this, their second case, Trina approaches Jason, asking him to go with her to Florida to look in to the strange story of Chloe Marsh. Chloe had been killed in an accident, yet seemingly miraculously came back to life. She undergoes some very strange changes and develops supernatural powers that nobody can account for. The story revolves around the efforts of Trina and Jason to discover how to rid Chloe of what they believe is a spirit, they discover that others who had fallen victim to this spirit had eventually died .... except one. They must discover how and why he survived so that they might learn how to save Chloe from a certain death.I had thoroughly enjoyed the first book, which was, in my opinion a 5 star read with huge potential for a cracking good series, sorry to say, but I don't feel this one lives up to that potential. What on earth has happened to Trina and Jason? It was like reading about two different characters, apart from a brief mention early in the book, gone was the flamboyance and wonderful personality of Trina. Jason lost his witty dry wisecracking personality, there was no spark between them at all, they were dull. Chloe was for me, the star of the show, I thought her character was the most enjoyable of the story.NarratorI alway enjoy listening to Steven Jay Cohen, he does the job so well, characters are clearly and consistently defined. It's always a risk, I think, when a narrator takes over a series, and it's not something I am keen on, however, that's just my opinion. This book was via Audioblast in return for this honest review

    I listened to this book with my husband and neither of us cared for the narrator or the story. Had either one been better we might have been able to enjoy but sadly that was not the case. We had not read the first book in this series but that should not have been a problem. The book was very wordy long descriptions that were not needed.

    I wanted to ike this book.I didn't.It had a premise that should have been interesting,but was filled with too many explainations and wordiness to be interesting.The narrator,Stephen J Cohen,did not give the characters ant personality.Maybe he was bored like I was.I was gifted a copy for an honest review.

    Perhaps if I had also listened to the first book I would have liked this more. The characters seemed flat, the plot dragged. The style didn't work for the kind of detective story this is--a pair of traveling psychic detectives--way too highfalutin. You can't get away with that on audio.

    The premise was good and the characters interesting, but the story dragged in so many places. Between that and a narrator whose quiet, breathy delivery seemed more likely to put me to sleep or think on other things, I was far less than delighted. I had hoped for so much more.
