Murder on the Mind by L.L. Bartlett
Jeff Resnick, an out-of-work insurance investigator is brutally mugged and when he awakens he has only his half-brother to depend on and a strange feeling that keeps getting stranger - he sees a man murdered in his mind.
Jeff's brother Richard takes him home to Buffalo where Jeff confronts his memories and works to uncover the murderer of the man who as a child help him at a low point in his life. His psychic abilities are reaching deeper and deeper into the murder and showing not only who did it but who was the witness.
Turning to the police with his "feelings" does get him the help he needs until he can give evidence to convince the detective in charge. Will it be in time?
I was blown away by this story. First, the author writes great cozies so I was prepared for something totally different. Second, I don't usually go in for those "psychic" things but the way the story unravels, the reader is right there with the character trying to understand what's happening to him. It seemed so real.
