The brother of gullible, pregnant widow Jodie McManus asks Nate to prevent her from selling her home after spending all her late husband Mike's inheritance on clever TV "psychic" Dalton Rand. The team elaborately convinces Rand that Tara is a real clairvoyant, so he'll engage her as his assistant, instead of loyal researcher Wilson Perry. Then criminal Nickolas Kusen is convinced of the psychics' abilities and kidnaps them, so the team has to expose both crooks. Written by KGF Vissers

User Reviews

Ethically spurious
14 March 2013 | by tburmelSee all my reviews

Ethically ambiguous as necromancy is wrong and may lead to the wrong paranormal sources and voices.

The main fault lays on the clients' side. They are the pusillanimous ones trying to break a (super)natural border taking life and and afterlife in their own hands, even at the cost of their existence.

The fraudster is as harmful as a dealer who sells fake drugs, or as a "parental control" doctor who fulfills fake abortions.

Plot is still interesting though, acting particularly exaggerated e.g. by the blonde team member (thief).

Of course the fraudster would have been able to talk himself back to freedom at the end as seen at his rhetorical and empathic gifts before. One random finding of a (well hidden) microphone by a random TV-show guest seems not enough for the conviction of the host.
