Murder in Scorpio

( 2 )

Overview

Licensed Private Investigator Elizabeth Chase is used to skeptical glares and sarcastic comments when she's working on a case. Her unorthodox methods tend to surprise people: Dr. Chase is also a double-Ph.D. parapsychologist who uses her understanding of the paranormal in her investigations. Certainly some of her techniques do stand out a bit from those of the average P.I., such as her ability to see auras around witnesses or pluck important clues from her own dreams.

Overview

Licensed Private Investigator Elizabeth Chase is used to skeptical glares and sarcastic comments when she's working on a case. Her unorthodox methods tend to surprise people: Dr. Chase is also a double-Ph.D. parapsychologist who uses her understanding of the paranormal in her investigations. Certainly some of her techniques do stand out a bit from those of the average P.I., such as her ability to see auras around witnesses or pluck important clues from her own dreams. So naturally, Escondido Police Department Sergeant Tom McGowan has some internal doubts about consulting Elizabeth on a case involving the so-called accidental death of his old high-school friend Janice Freeman. As her investigations cast an increasingly suspicious light on Janice's death. Tom quickly gains more than a little respect (and affection) for Elizabeth. But the closer she gets to the truth, the less either Tom's protection or the intervention of the stars and planets may be able to keep Elizabeth out of harm's way.

When licensed P.I./Ph.D. parapsychologist Elizabeth Chase uses her unorthodox methods to help Police Sergeant Tom McCowen find the killer of his friend, Janice Freeman, she begins to pick up a few unpleasant auras that have the unmistakable color of evil. Trying to pin down Janice's last fateful day of life, Elizabeth charts her final moves--and follows the celestial signs to murder. Martin's Press.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Debut mystery featuring a detective who uses her psychic abilities to solve a murder. Nov.
Library Journal
Highly educated California parapsychologist Elizabeth Chase uses her psychic gift to solve crimes. When a skeptical Sgt. Thomas McGowen of the local police asks for help while investigating a death he believes is murder, Chase readily complies. Elizabeth's association with McGowen not only sparks a little romance but also results in contact with the victim's drug-addicted ex-boyfriend, an ambitious, secretive boss, and her unlamenting stepmother. The psychic's search for truth culminates in a scene of terrorizing suspense. Fine prose, a matter-of-fact approach to some rather extraordinary perceptions, and a wry sense of humor characterize a remarkable first novel.

    I Couldn't Put It Down

    Martha Lawrence's first book introduces the reader to Elizabeth Chase, a psychic private investigator. While I must admit, I was a bit skeptical at first, my doubts were completely washed away after reading the first few chapters. This is a gripping, suspenseful work, with many twists and turns and with a meaningful and honest approach to psychics. This was one of those rare books where I couldn't wait to find out what happened next and at the same time didn't want to finish it. I didn't want this wonderful adventure to end!!
