|Plot Summary of High Impact|
Dell, Dec 2003, 6.50, 592.
In the Miami Airport pilot Kate Gallagher and her six year old daughter Molly head to the plane that the former will fly while her child rides as a passenger. A sickly looking man accidentally knocks into Molly with both feeling the electric shock that passes between them. The man apologizes before racing for his flight. However, the plane he rides suddenly loses all electrical power. The man, Evan Blake, panics and sends a psychic message to warn the “others” that the destruction of Nogales was real and Hawkins was coming for them. Molly receives that psychic message that sends her into unconsciousness yelling about the fire. The other plane crashes into the sea while Molly is rushed to the hospital.
With Evan dead, Hawkins knows he just has to eliminate the other witnesses to the remote viewing incident at Nogales. However, he hears a TV news interview that describes what happened to Molly. He does not care whether Blake made psychic contact with the child or not because he will eliminate that problem regardless using his ability to communicate with the environment as he did to the plane.
Fans of action-packed thrillers that use psychic abilities in a realistic manner will want to read the second Kate Gallagher tale. The story line starts at the speed of light and picks up speed until the final landing. Molly is a solid precocious child who inadvertently becomes embroiled in something outside her understanding. Kate is a great protagonist and the support cast enhances her as a nurturing single working mother or as a lioness walking a HIGH WIRE protecting her cub. Readers will enjoy this strong Davidette vs. Goliath survivor tale.
