Overview

The brutal murder of an old man in an isolated farmhouse leaves local law enforcement with no alternative but to ask the Psionic Corps for help. Ian Houston, with his paranormal abilities, is called in, but his presence isn’t welcomed by all. The sheriff is convinced the owners of the nearby renaissance faire are behind the murder, especially since the victim was about to evict the faire from his land just as their season was getting underway.

Ian is not convinced the case is so straightforward, especially since there are other people with motives for doing away with the old man -- the neighbor with whom he has had a long-going property dispute, the son who will inherit his land, one of the faire's patrons who's been harassed by the old man over the years. To keep innocent people from being charged with murder, Ian must join the renaissance faire as a cast member to see if a murderer lurks among the ren folke.

Impeding his investigation is beautiful actress Diana Morgan, who instantly steals his heart. But as a cast member, she is also under suspicion, and Ian discovers she may have a dark past, too.

A second murder ramps up the investigation and the mystery becomes even more confused. Meanwhile, the sheriff is moving closer to charging the renaissance faire owners with murder.

Can Ian use his powers to find the real culprit and prove the innocence of his newfound friends?

    Ian is an investigator with special powers. He is called in to i

    Ian is an investigator with special powers. He is called in to investigate the murder of Tom Eskew.  His murder is being pinned on Renaissance Faire owners that rent some land from him. It turns out his wife has been missing for a year and his neighbor gets killed too.  Who is the killer? What are Ian’s powers? I am not gonna tell you! You will have to read the book to see.
     
    I found this book very intriguing. The story is realistic and believable. The murder, mystery is well planned out and leaves you wondering to the end who is guilty. I liked the present day setting and the way the renaissance faire is explained and portrayed it never felt like a history lesson or an info dump. The back story of Ian’s power’s and past was also slowly unraveled. The whole story was nice and smooth and intriguing. I did get the feel this was a second book in a series. In searching I found Inside Passage to Murder which looks like it may be the first book.  Having said this, the book is definitely stand alone.. You don’t need to read the first to understand anything, but I have to admit…. I checked because I WANT to read the other.

    Recommendations: If you like a good murder mystery set in present day times, with paranormal twists this one is it!
