9780425228838: Dark Aura

They're called indigo children- and one by one, they're disappearing-in this "clever, witty and insightful"(San Diego Union Tribune) mystery.

Deputy Sheriff Carla Day is looking into the disappearances of a few "indigo babies"-gifted children who radiate a purplish glow, according to aura-seers. Then a fifteen-year-old indigo child, Tamina, falls off a hillside rock to her death, and nobody knows whether it was an accident, suicide, or murder. And just before dying, she whispers concern for her own secret baby. Carla's father, an aging Egyptologist, might be able to help: he befriended the girl, but in his mental decline he confuses Tamina with Ta-Ent, a mythical journeywoman. Carla has a town full of unreliable witnesses; if only she knew which of them to discount.

About the Author:

Diana O'Hehir is the author of six books of poetry and two novels, one a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. She taught at Mills College, where she founded the Creative Writing Program. She has received several awards and an NEA grant.

From Publishers Weekly:

O'Hehir's engaging third mystery (after Erased from Memory) finds part-time deputy sheriff Carla Day facing a confusing case. In a California community peopled by aging hippies, prophesying teen Tamina Kerry has fallen to her death—or was she pushed? And what's the talk of babies with special indigo auras? When a man is found with his throat slit after Tamina's funeral, Carla knows she needs to find out fast. O'Hehir's spare prose and dab hand with character development render Carla intriguing and slightly remote; readers will plow eagerly through the story just to get to know her better. Her boss, sheriff Cherie Ghent, is also likable, a blonde fashion plate who manages those around her by playing dumb. Running alongside the crime-solving is Carla's intermittent affair with sweet-talking Rob (whom Cherie stole and then generously gave back) and her devotion to her father, who's losing his memory to Alzheimer's. Carla's filial care-giving balances the West Coast occultism and lends this whodunit emotional heft. (Dec.)
