"A thrilling paranormal"

When her cousin Molly informs New Orleans based mystery writer Rebecca Ryan that a beloved 'relative' has cancer, she returns to her hometown of Sinclair, West Virginia for her first visit since she left for college. Becca has the ability to 'see' things others cannot and had earned a reputation for finding things and solving crimes as a child. However, the one time the sight failed her was eight years ago when someone kidnapped and killed her younger brother Jonnie.

While Becca drives her car in town, she suffers a vision of someone kidnapping a boy before she crashes her vehicle. At the emergency room Dr. Clay Bellamy, a person she once had a crush on, tends her minor injuries. Becca learns that someone abducted Molly's son and her vision showed her the lad is alive but frightened and sick. She wonders if history will repeat itself or will she save little Todd. As she falls in love with Clay, she wonders if he will accept the full Becca, visions and all?

SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE is a thrilling paranormal romantic suspense novel that persuades the audience that ESP abilities are real and some people have them. The characters seem genuine enabling the audience to suspend disbelief in the 'sight' if they so choose. The story line is filled with action, plenty of anguish and angst, and a foreboding clock that seems as if the key players are helplessly doomed to witness history repeat itself. Carlene Thompson proves once again why she is so popular among fans and critics alike.
