Title: The Night Janitor
Author: T.F. Allen
Narrator: B.J. Harrison
Annamaria Gabor can kill with a whisper and a touch. Her victims never realize she’s given them a deadly disease. The cops will never arrest her. No jury will ever convict her. And no one can stop her – no one except her brother.
Luke Johnson can heal by touch. He works as a night janitor in hospitals and nursing homes, healing patients as discretely as he can. Once people notice his work, he moves on to the next city – before the hired assassins arrive.
Luke is a hunted man. His sister wants him dead because he knows her deepest secret. And she has big plans for her future only he can destroy.
Luke works at a hospital as a janitor, but he’s no ordinary janitor. He has a power. With it, he can heal people by touch alone, and he has a knack for healing those close to death. One day though, those powers get him caught by a nurse. He knows it’s time to move on because staying in place could help his sister find him. The one who wishes to kill him. His sister is gifted too, but unlike him, her gifts help her to destroy.
I loved the good versus evil struggle throughout the story. Especially where it contrasts in Luke and Annamaria (his sister). Where Luke is good, she is evil. In a lot of paranormal stories, there are superheroes who are able to heal, but not very many villains who can whisper an illness and set it into motion. I thought that was an interesting touch. Plenty of twists and turns throughout the story.
T.F. Allen has a way of building up the characters and the world before diving into the action, and I love that. I’ve only read one other book by this author, but I can say that I will keep an eye out for books by them in the future.
The narrator did a fantastic job as well.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
