Cass Lehman has a terrifying 'gift'...The youngest in a family of extraordinary women with supernatural talents, Cass is cursed with the not-so-sexy gift of seeing the past...but not just any past; she sees death. For years she's hidden herself away in her family home. Now, desperate for a better life, she ventures into sleepy Jewel Bay, only to stumble upon murder and mayhem and a killer at large who's long been lurking in their midst. Taking a chance, Cass volunteers to assist Detective Ed Dyson with the investigation. Will Cass be able to save the latest victim - and herself?

About the Author

Melanie Casey was born and lives in South Australia with her two young children and her husband (who didn’t know he was marrying a writer when he walked down the isle).

After studying English Literature and Classical Studies, Melanie shifted in to Law, and now works in government.

A chance meeting with a highschool English teacher in the supermarket made Melanie realize that she should be doing what she’d always loved, writing! Another period of study, this time at the Professional Writing School of Adelaide’s College of the Arts ensued, helping Melanie acquire the skills she needed to put her plan into action.

Hindsight is her debut novel, and is the first in a series of crime novels featuring Cass Lehman and Detective Ed Dyson.

        Once I read about this book in a newsletter, I had a feeling that this was going to be a good read - and the writer did NOT disappoint!

        Great story, with quite a few twists and turns here and there, one that will keep you hooked in suspense until the very end!!

        Honestly? Can't wait for the next in the series to come out.

            Takes me a while to get my head around whose who with most books, and when I did with Hindsight I was so hooked I finished the book in a day!! Loved it. Lots of twists I didn't see coming. And Cass + Ed being the main characters? Nope, they came a poor second to the cat - lol.

              Hindsight – it sounds like a cliché, but REALLY a "rollicking good read" from a new author. The characters are alive, the plot flows. Fabulous holiday reading. I enjoyed it very much.

                Great book, thoroughly recommended. Australian author and local settings set it apart from the usual fare in this genre.
