She's a California P.I. with something extra-an instinct for trouble and a special sense of danger.

Elizabeth Chase is used to funny looks and disbelief when she tells people she uses the paranormal and astrology to help her investigations. But when Sergeant Tom McGowan of the Escondido Police Department needs help in exploring the not-so-accidental death of an old friend, he turns to her.

Instantly, Elizabeth is absorbed by the case, and searches the stars and her sensitive psyche for answers. Janic Freeman, the dead woman, had a lot of friends, but as Elizabeth scans the artifacts of Janice's life and meets the people she know, 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 cold-blooded murder.

About the Author:

Martha C. Lawrence, who has worked as a book editor, a professional astrologer, and a business writer, currently lives in Escondido, California. Her second novel starring Elizabeth Chase is now available in hardcover from St. Martin's Press.

From 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.
