Synopsis: THE SILENCE OF THE DEAD
My name is Rowan Gant, and it has been far too many days since I have heard the voices inside my head... No, I'm not insane--at least I hope I'm not. Actually, what I am is a Witch with a rare talent, even for Witches. I can hear the voices of the dead--murder victims, to be specific. Personally, I consider it less a talent and more a curse, especially given all the grief it brings me. But the cops think otherwise, which is why I find myself consulting for them on a regular basis. In fact, the running joke is that they should just go ahead and give me a badge. I sometimes fear they might make good on that threat.
However, like I said, it has been a while since any dead people have so much as given me the time of day. I'll be honest, even though I never really wanted them to talk to me in the first place, now that they have stopped it seems almost like a piece of me is missing--a big piece.
As fate would have it, at the same time I've become persona non grata with the dead, it looks as if a serial killer is at work in the St. Louis area. The murders are pretty heinous, too, and that's just the sort of thing that usually turns the rumbling chatter of the victims into a deafening roar and a blinding migraine for yours truly...but not this time, and I have no Earthly--or even unearthly--idea why.
What I do know is the Major Case Squad could benefit from my help on this, but I've got nothing to give them. Nothing at all... Unfortunately, it seems that there is now someone else with my rare affliction instead of me.
I never thought I'd hear myself say this, but I want my curse back...
From the Inside Flap:
Just Imagine... It's 2:17 AM.
You've only slept 4 hours out of the past 48. You have a blinding headache that would make a migraine seem like a pleasant distraction. On top of that, the handful of aspirin you took for it 30 minutes ago is making your stomach churn in a very unpleasant way.
Now, just imagine that even with all of that making your life a living hell, it doesn't end there. Instead of being at home where you can suffer in private, you are on the opposite side of town, standing smack dab in the middle of a disgustingly brutal crime scene--the third in as many days.
Cops and evidence techs are watching with jaded expressions as you literally channel the final moments of the murder victim's life through your own mind and body, right before their eyes.
The horror... The fear... The pain...
You see and feel it all, as if your own isn't already enough...
And, by the way, even though the cops asked you to be here, most of them think you belong in an institution, specifically one that is outfitted with padded walls.
Yeah, I know... It sounds like some kind of nightmare, doesn't it? Well, welcome to my world. Be glad you aren't me because this curse that is my life doesn't stop at being a nightmare.
No. It is all too real...
My name is Rowan Gant, and I'm the unofficial Witch for the Greater Saint Louis Major Case Squad.
I'd quit the job, but the dead won't let me...
