Bestseller Kanes fifth Forensic Instincts novel (after 2015s The Silence That Speaks) makes suspending disbelief a challenge, especially for readers unwilling to believe that Forensic Instincts, a Manhattan-based private investigation firm with the reputation that brought clients in by the droves, has a claircognizant (or psychic) on staff. That employee, Claire Hedgleigh, says that she has a metaphysical sense in which I simply know something to be true, even though I cant back any of it up with fact or provide an explanation as to how I know it. Claires talent is put to use when FI gets involved in helping Lisa Barnes, a desperate job seeker. Despite a lack of credentials, Lisa is hired by personal trainer Julie Forman to work in a Chicago womens gym and is even offered a place to stay. When Julie is gunned down right before Lisas eyes, Lisa, who closely resembles the dead woman, decides to assume her identity and flee the city. FI learns of her plight and gets to work identifying Julies killer. Thin characters dont make the improbable plot any more palatable. (May)
