I preferred it when life came in tidy packages. When it didn’t — when something went awry — I was exceedingly skilled at packaging it back up. It was my job to do so, after all.
I was a reconstructionist.
I collected the puzzle pieces, then I gave those pieces to an investigative team to sort out. I didn’t ask questions. I didn’t offer answers. I saw, I recorded, and I moved on.
I didn’t dwell or obsess. I didn’t hunt down suspects. I didn’t follow clues to find a killer. And I certainly didn’t work side by side with anyone — least of all a vampire who I strongly suspected might turn out to be the major missing component when the case was complete.
Then I saw something I couldn’t forget. It wasn’t the bloodiest thing I’d ever seen — it wasn’t even close — but it haunted me. I didn’t like being haunted.
But I couldn’t figure out how to get it out of my head.
Someone was killing teenaged boys in the Pacific Northwest. Despite my misgivings, if I could help catch a killer, I had to at least try.
This 68,000 word urban fantasy is the first book in the Reconstructionist Series by author Meghan Ciana Doidge. Author’s note: The ideal reading order of Catching Echoes (Reconstructionist 1) is after the first six books in the Dowser Series and the three books in the Oracle series, but it's not actually necessary to read the Dowser or the Oracle series before reading the Reconstructionist Series.
Such an interesting book! Wisteria and Kettil make an unusual pairing. You have a reconstructionist and a vampire. One of Kett’s remarks in the beginning gives you a clue something is up. For a mystery which is well executed to bits of humor and even hints of romance, such and interesting book! I give this book more than five stars and I love the whole involvement of Jade and Jasmine! I highly recommend this book and I look forward to the next book in the series!
I absolutely loved the Reconstructionist, Book 1! The story keeps building and building and then... WHAM! The possibilities of where this series will go is so exciting! Really stoked for spring when Reconstructionist 2 comes out. Meghan Ciana Doidge has done an awesome job with all her series. Do yourself a favor and dig in!
