The future is full of extraordinary surprises for fans of Victoria Laurie's unorthodox investigator, Abby Cooper -- whose adventures began in Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye and continued in the novella "Blind Sighted" from the anthology Drop-Dead Blonde.
Abby's not a private investigator; she's a psychic intuitive who works with a crew of spirit guides to foretell the future. And it's crystal clear that Abby's in for plenty of trouble in Better Read than Dead. A favor for a friend has landed her at a Mob-connected wedding, where she finds herself reading tarot for a hit man! Now the father of the bride has made Abby an offer she can't refuse -- an offer that's interfering with both her personal life and her professional efforts to aid the police in their search for a violent rapist. Can she balance the psychic scales and see her way clear to a future where justice prevails? This outing by author Victoria Laurie (herself a psychic who has assisted in criminal investigations) indicates a long and happy future for Abby Cooper. Sue Stone
