Born in Yokohama, Japan, on September 9, 1903, Phyllis A. Whitney was a prolific author of award-winning adult and children’s fiction. Her sixty-year writing career and the publication of seventy-six books, which together sold over fifty million copies worldwide, established her as one of the most successful mystery and romantic suspense writers of the twentieth century and earned her the title “The Queen of the American Gothics.”
Whitney resided in several places, including New Jersey. She traveled to every location mentioned in her books in order to better depict the settings of her stories. She earned the Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Award in 1988, the Agatha in 1990, and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of Midland Authors in 1995. Whitney was working on her autobiography at the time of her passing at the age of 104.
Christy Loren has inherited psychic powers from her mother, a renowned psychic. Haunted by the images of murder victims she has helped to find, she flees to her aunt in Virginia, only to find that here, too, her powers are needed to solve a possible murder and the disappearance of a strange young woman. Fearing the evil she senses, and attracted to the husband of the missing woman, Christy only reluctantly investigates. In solving the puzzle, she comes to terms with her gift. The somewhat disjointed narrative spoils an otherwise standard Whitney romance. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club main selections. Marylaine Block, St. Ambrose Univ. Lib., Davenport, Ia.
