Review: TOUCH SENSITIVE by Lee Isserow

A noir-ish paranormal featuring an unusual Liverpool private investigator with an unusual capacity: he is a sensitive, specifically tactilely. That is, while other sensitivities experience memories through visual, olfactory, auditory, or gustatory input, he receives through touch. I think it may be common to wistfully wonder what others think of us, or what may have occurred in a particular locale, but to be open to this flood of input, constantly, must be terrifying. Following his investigations is eye-opening, and elicits reader's empathy for this individual who desires to be tough and hard-boiled, but remains soft and vulnerable.
