Divine Intervention - Cheryl Kaye Tardiff

Synopsis - CFBI agent Jasmine McLellan is assigned a hot case—one that requires the psychic abilities of the PSI Division, a secret government agency located in the secluded town of Divine, BC.
Jasi leads a psychically gifted team in the hunt for a serial arsonist—a murderer who has already taken the lives of three innocent people. Unleashing her gift as a Pyro-Psychic, Jasi is compelled toward smoldering ashes and enters the killer's mind. A mind bent on destruction and revenge.
Jasi's team, consisting of Psychometric Empath and profiler, Ben Roberts, and Victim Empath, Natassia Prushenko, is led down a twisting path of dark, painful secrets. Brandon Walsh, the handsome, smooth-talking Chief of Arson Investigations joins them in a manhunt that takes them across British Columbia—from Vancouver to Kelowna, Penticton and Victoria.
While impatiently sifting through the clues that were left behind, Jasi and her team realize that there is more to the third victim than meets the eye. Perhaps not all of the victims were that innocent. The hunt intensifies when they learn that someone they know is next on the arsonist's list.
The case heats to the boiling point as Jasi steps out of the flames…and into the fire. And in the heat of early summer, Agent Jasi McLellan discovers that a murderer lies in wait…much closer than she imagined.  (Taken from Goodreads)

ReviewI won this e-book from LibraryThing Members Giveaways.  Cheryl Kaye Tardiff is an established Canadian author, this is the first book I have read by her.  This book gripped me right from the start through to the very end.  The scene was set with good characterisations and the story developed and blossomed.  Fast paced and very difficult to put my iPad down as I couldn't wait to move on to the next chapter.  Futuristic in the sense of psychic empathy and gifts but I felt this added to the storyline and drama.  I cannot wait to read Divine Justice, the follow up to this book.  4*
