More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A wounded FBI agent takes on a serial killer. Special Agent Aurora "Rory" Travis never expected to find herself in Sarasota, Fla., living the easy life at the Ritz-Carlton with her great-aunt Hyacinth. In spite of her self-avowed psychic sense, there are an awful lot of things that Rory never foresaw, including the sudden death of her partner during an attempted takedown, which also caused her severe bodily injury, and her subsequent leave from the FBI. A suicide on the grounds of the Bellman Museum, where Rory's taken refuge as a volunteer driver, leads her to investigate. As she asks questions, pranks escalate from harmless effigies to nearly weekly murders. Rory's psychic sense apparently deserts her when she meets Josh Thomas, prototypical mysterious stranger and suspect. She can't decide if hunky Thomas is a bad boy or an ally in her investigation. Ken Parrish, the local cop assigned to the case, dislikes Thomas on sight. Is that just because he doesn't want competition for Rory's affections? Archetypes of good and evil dance like sugarplums in Rory's head as she gathers information from both men, never completely trusting either. Despite occasional bursts of inspiration, Parke's first mystery gets bogged down by abrupt shifts of time and place that would trouble even a psychic. They may be less essential in the romances (Lady Knight, 2007, etc.) she writes as Blair Bancroft.

    This is an engaging Florida investigative thriller

    After falling from the third floor and having her FBI partner-lover Eric die in the same incident, Special Agent Aurora "Rory" Travis is on sick leave healing in Sarasota, Florida at the Ritz-Carlton suite rented by her wealthy great-Aunt Hyacinth. Rory is a volunteer tram driver two days a week at the nearby Bellman Museum.----------------------

    However, the place proves far from calm starting with the apparent suicide of Honors College student Tim Mundell. Soon after during a thunder storm, mysterious Josh Thomas leaps into her tram. Additionally someone is pulling pranks that Rory believes is being done by security and art student Billie Bellman. Police Detective Ken Parrish investigates the pranks that soon turn to homicide.-------------

    This is an engaging Florida investigative thriller starring a likable cast to include eccentric seniors especially Aunt Hy, polar opposite sleuths with an in common interest in Rory, and a terrific heroine struggling to regain her sea legs who needs to dump her psychic power that seems more of a handicap than help. The story line is fast-paced, but shifts scenes unexpectedly without smooth transitions. Still this is fun mystery due to the strong characterizations as readers will wonder who is behind the murders and the pranks; and who will Rory choose, if anyone?------------
