High school senior Jenny Gallagher’s psychic abilities have made life in her small New England town a rocky one. Her premonitions and déjà vu have given her a reputation, but not one she’s happy with. Tragedy is about to strike again however, and this time she oddly doesn’t see it coming. Is her gift betraying her? Now what’s happening?
Not far from Jenny, Wellesley Professor Maximus Dyer also has a gift. To his thinking, a painful and useless one. Able to see the past, his ability has brought him insight into the field of history, but other than that, he’s never known what to make of it. Overwhelmed by the physic shocks his unprotected hands receive through touch, he’s frustrated that his secrets have made any deeply real, human relationships literally beyond his grasp. But someone new enters his life who doesn’t trigger a vision. A dog?
Sidrah Keeling runs determinedly optimistic through her life trying hard not to ask the big questions. Her foresight, her ability to see glimpses of the future in her dreams, often drive her to follow a path she doesn’t understand, but she listens to them. Recognizing that the guardrails of security she’s erected around her doesn’t mean she’s in control, she reluctantly stays alert, waiting for answers, uncertain if she’ll ever find them.
Lurking deep in his sensory deprivation tank, Turner Black sees it all. Born out of the great chaos of time, he once again feels the forces of good gathering to move against him. Not in this life. This time, his darkness would reign supreme. The hunt for his antithesis would begin again now. He couldn’t wait to feel his opponent in destiny bleed.
You’re where you’re meant to be. Run if you can.

Dead Cat, Run introduces three individuals with psychic abilities and a dog. Sedrah Keeling, a wealthy young woman, who sees the future via her dreams, Max Dyer, a history professor who sees the past via a mere touch and Jenny Gallagher, a college student who sees the near past and future via visions. These three lived separate lives until the day when fate brought them, including the dog, together. Prior to their coming together, evil hovered at their doorsteps, but at the point of their meeting, it came knocking. Now their lives will never be the same.
The story started out slow and gradually picked up the pace, culminating into an exciting finish. Despite the slow start, I never had a dull moment. The first half of the book provided sufficient background information on the characters. The information allowed me to be completely invested in their lives and I enjoyed getting to know all three individuals. However, the character that intrigued me the most was the dog whom they named Bones.
I am eager to learn more about Bones, who appeared out of the blue, with no apparent history. Nevertheless, one thing was clear, this was no ordinary dog. Bone’s abilities went beyond that of a normal dog. Highly intelligent, observant and loyal. There were other special things about Bones, but I will not mention them. You will have read the book and discover them for yourself.
Overall, Dead Cat, Run was a well-developed and entertaining story of good vs evil. A story, which kept me reading into the wee hours of the morning. Do I regret the loss of sleep? Nah, it was well worth it. Now on to book two.
Readers who enjoy fantasy, suspense with a dash of romance should consider adding Dead Cat, Run to their reading list.
