Weavers

Aric Davis. Amazon/Thomas & Mercer, $15.95 trade paper (396p) ISBN 978-1-4778-4934-7
Near the start of this unremarkable supernatural thriller from Davis (Tunnel Vision), nine-year-old Cynthia Robinson and her mother, who’s getting a divorce from the girl’s father, arrive at the North Harbor Apartments, their new home in Michigan. Cythnia and her mother meet elderly Henrietta Martin, a North Harbor resident, whose personal history has a connection with the concentration camp at Dachau. Henrietta recognizes Cynthia as a fellow weaver, someone who can manipulate the colored strings (which function as auras) that they see on other people. They use their powers for good, as when Henrietta helps Cynthia save a possibly suicidal neighbor. Meanwhile, Darryl and Terry, who share the telekinetic power called bending, use it to murder a series of victims on a cross-country spree that will bring them face-to-face with Cynthia. Readers should be prepared for mostly one-note characters, an overly leisurely plot, and a general lack of suspense. (July)
