    Yet another genius Rob Thurman snarky antihero that you can't help but love. I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this book at first because I'm not much of a main stream thriller fan. But I love everything Rob writes & I do enjoy a good mystery & this definitely fit the bill. While I was able to figure out a couple of plot points, it didn't take away from the story at all. And the chemistry between the characters has a real "buddy cop" movie feel too it but I totally mean that in [...]

    Full disclosure: Rob Thurman is my client. So yeah, I'm one of her biggest cheerleaders, but not because she's a client. I fell in love with her twisted and darkly beautiful imagination before we partnered up, so these opinions are truly objective.As a rule, I don't review client books - I only give honest star-ratings. But this book is SO special, I had to SAY some things about it, if only to get it out of my system. ;) 1. Imagine PARANORMAL ACTIVITY and INSIDIOUS mixed with the TV shows MEDIUM [...]

    All Seeing Eye introduces Jackson Lee, a tough living, bad-ass, psychic, who gets drawn into a bizarre plot that pulls him to the limits of his abilities, and sanity.Despite flirting with melodrama, Thurman successfully pulls together the supernatural, familial drama, action and a more than healthy dose of humour.All Seeing Eye, is a truly great novel. Aside from an over-reliance on the concept of sociopathy, Thurman does a brilliant job of intertwining a number of plot-lines without contrivance [...]

    As always, another great read from Rob Thurman! I'm looking forward to the next Jackson Lee Eye book. (Please tell me there will be another.)

    You may also read my review here: mybookishways/2013/06/The death of one of Jackson Lee’s sisters, Tessa, at a very young age, a death that Jackson himself was able to “see” using his gift, spurred a retaliatory act of violence that led young Jackson to the Cane Lake County Home for Boys, where he was called Shotgun Jack, a name he came by honestly. As things go, Cane Lake could have been much worse (it was bad enough), and Jackson even met someone that would later influence his life, but [...]

    Good premise, very well done. And it even has a surprisingly warm-and-fuzzy ending, especially for a Rob Thurman novel.Thurman has pretty much cornered the market on smartassery and has given me another smartass, Jackson Lee, to like. Jackson is the survivor of a cluster of horrible family tragedies. He’s also a bona fide psychic who can see a person’s thoughts and history if he touches them skin-to-skin or touches their belongings. He even gets impressions off animals, which is why he’s a [...]

    After Nightlife, Rob Thurman quickly became one of my favorite authors. She writes mostly in urban fantasy, though her Korsak series is science fiction. All Seeing Eye is squarely in the mystery genre, although it does have a "supernatural" element. Jackson Lee has a talent - psychometry, the ability to read the past from touching things (people, objects). Initially, the book reminded me of Charlaine Harris' Grave series. However, Thurman has written a much better mystery to go along with her pr [...]

    Eye is a story about revisiting the past to uncover the truth and come to grips with decisions made. Jackson Lee Eye’s troubled past involved the deaths of his parents and younger sister. The vehicle that allows Eye to revisit his past is Eye’s psychic ability. He can learn all about a person simply by touching an object the person owns. If he touches the actual person, the flow of information can overwhelm Eye and put him in the hospital. Eye is a curmudgeonly loner who sees his “gift” [...]

    Spectacular, just like everything else she writes. I couldn't put it down. I hope, hope, hope we see more of Jackson Lee Eye in the future.

    “All Seeing Eye” by Rob Thurman is a mesmerizing suspense novel that explores the use of psychic phenomena in a harsh society. Jackson Lee’s childhood is destroyed with the death of his younger sister Tess and the horrific aftermath that stems from that event. His very real psychic power fails to protect his family from destruction but he never loses his desire to rescue Tess’ twin sister and provide a better life for her. He parlays his talent for psychometry (the ability to determine i [...]

    dreameras.wordpress/2013/0For readers who have followed Rob Thurman through the Leandros, Trickster, and Chimera novels, her latest All Seeing Eye far from disappoints. Thurman sticks with her trade mark first person viewpoint and takes readers on a supernatural journey with an emotionally damaged psychic.As always she delivers in-depth characters and page turning drama. It was refreshing to experience a one book adventure from Thurman, who seems just as capable of writing stand alone books as s [...]

    This book made me cry buckets! Specially towards the end. So make sure you got a box of kleenex handy, just in case. Rob Thurman brought into this book the same fantastic story telling quality that I've come to know of her with the Cal Leandros series. And I think, because of that, this book is very fast-paced indeed! Read the book in one day I got a few nitpicking issues with the reincarnation subject matter but I am willing to let it slide for now for the wonderful reading time that the book g [...]

    Jackson's story is the background to this mystery. It starts with how he got his powers of psychometry and how he deals with it in his life. The way the story of his life unfolds is a bit different than what we are used to in these stories. Instead of having it laid out before us, we are often playing catch-up, but nothing is missed. Even though there were times you knew you were missing information, you knew it was coming since this book is not part of a series. I actually enjoyed the way infor [...]

    You know how when the author of your favorite series writes a book outside of that series so you don't want to like it cuz you just want to keep reading more of the other series? That's how I was with this book, which is totally a messed up way of thinking, but hey, I'm a tad messed up. But, of course I was going to read it anyway, because it's written by Rob Effin Thurman.Yes, her middle name is Effin. Yes, in my head I'm thinking a different word that begins with F, but I'm trying to be a good [...]

    The only criticism I have of this book is that the male lead feels pretty much indistinguishable from Cal Leandros. Yes, sure, he's a psychometrist instead of a half-monster. And he's pretty much alone instead of having Nico.But in all the ways that count for me as a reader - voice, tone, attitude, belief system (which comes down to "do unto others before they do unto you") - he feels like Cal.Other than that (and possibly even with that - I like Cal, after all), I really enjoyed this book. I'm [...]

    Jackson is locked up, accused of killing his entire family in a massacreI found this book to be really vague and confusing. It is vague because it lacks cohesive details of what actually happened to cause Jackson to get locked up. We are told that his psychic gift tells him that his sister Tess is dead when he touches her abandoned shoe, and that stepfather Boyd was responsible. What happened next is confusing and very unclear. What did Jackson do to Boyd? What happened to his mother? How did Te [...]

    This is a nice suspenseful thriller with a psi-powered twist, but I didn't like it as well as Thurman's Leandros books. The mystery aspect didn't work for me-- it was fairly obvious from the start who the baddie was-- and some of the plot points seemed a tad too convenient, but I enjoyed the story overall. Thurman does a good job of having the viewpoint narrator misdirect the reader; you have to observe what he does, not take what he says at face value. Some of the observations about mind-readin [...]

    Recommended for fans of Dean Koontz and Stephen King.So everyone knows I have a total fangirlcrush on Rob Thurman, which is fine, but this book was really awesome. There were a couple of things that were predictable--but more like, "if you don't give me x payoff, I'm going to be really disappointed," rather than, "Jesus, I saw that coming a mile away" cough cough Cassandra Clare cough. I'm completely in love with her Voice. Her narrators have a lot in common with one another (with the exception [...]

    Rob Thurman strikes again and bats this one out of the park and into orbitIMHO.Jackson Lee, the All-Seeing Eye, comes from a terrible childhood to a self-supporting and somewhat honest psychic-for-hire, gets roped, against his will, into a top secret project to help "save" a childhood friend. One he never realized or admitted to himself really was a friend.Along the way he discovers the extremes in which humans will go. Good, evil and some who are simply not to be trusted in any way.He discovers [...]

    This was my first book from this author and I was astounded! It was amazing! I did have a suspicion of who the culprit was from about the middle of the book, and I was highly rewarded to find out I was right. The poetic justice in the end had me smiling. I WOULD have given it five stars if not for the language. This author is amazingly talented and has a gift comparable to Mary Higgins Clark. She doesn't need the "F" word in there to make it better. I would love to read more of her, but unfortun [...]

    Rob Thurman always gives what I feel are predictable books yet somehow makes them so engaging you just can't put it down. I really enjoyed this book, despite predicting some of the major plot twists early on. The characters took awhile to grow on me but were definitely interesting, if not really used enough (Abby for example). I really just want to see more of these characters and where they are going to go next.

    Cathy
    It's so dark, but like all of her books, it's compelling. I can't help but hurt for him, I can't help but root for him, and I can't help but need to turn the page and see what's going to happen to him.

    audiobook -The reader was boring and added nothing to the character. I might have like it better as a book. That said, all of Rob's books will suffer in comparison to Cal.

    Aggie
    Absolutely astounding. Loved it.

    Started a little slow, but stick it out, the pay off is more than worth it!

    I want to read this now!

    4.5 stars.Though the trademark snark is there, I’m not sure if I’d know this was a Rob Thurman book if I didn’t know that beforehand. Actually, scratch that, I would, but it’s different enough from her other books that, even though it’s a variation on the same threads of a themes that runs through her other novels, familial bonds, tormented characters and sarcasm, she makes the characters and plot so fresh and different from the other books that you never feel like you’ve read it bef [...]

    Was a good book. (from 8th grade)

    Rob Thurman’s newest thriller leaves me in a bit of a quandary. I love her Leandros Brothers series so much, I’ve never given any of those books less than 5 stars. I loved the two Korsak Brothers books enough to give them each 5 stars, too. I expected to love this book just as much, and to rate it just as highly. But after a day’s reflection, I’m finding I can’t quite do that. If the Leandros & Korsak Brothers books are 5′s, and the Trickster books are 4′s, then in fairness, I [...]

    I know that it's practically blasphemous that I didn't like this but it just didn't work for me for a bunch of reasons. I don't think that I'm a Rob Thurman kinda gal as I tried reading the Leandros brothers & really struggled and DNF book 3 of that series. I thought I would try it again at some point but after reading this, I know I won't bother. I really wanted to like this more than but it was a mixed bag and mainly I found it predictable (what? yesI know but it was & I'll get into th [...]
