"The Seawitch takes lovers of the paranormal by storm in this wickedly suspenseful tale"

Fresh Fiction Review

Fantasy Urban

Harper Blaine had so many brushes with death, she now has one foot in the physical world and one foot in the spirit world. In SEAWITCH, we meet a no nonsense private investigator who is armed with one major talent: the ability to see, feel, and hear the unseen. Harper has had her share of encounters with the paranormal, but when a boat that disappeared twenty seven years ago suddenly reappears, Harper is called in to investigate.

Harper's investigation includes the help of Rey Solis, a cop who is all too aware of Harper's paranormal reputation. Both Harper and Solis tackle the mysterious reappearance of the Seawitch which will take them into a realm far from anything Harper has ever encountered. The Seawitch mysteriously disappeared twenty seven years ago. After some research, Harper and Solis discover the boat set out to sea with only a few passengers. The boat belonged to Cas Starret, a wealthy socialite who also disappeared with the Seawitch. But when Harper and Solis interview his widow, they discover that Cas frequently used the Seawitch for extramarital affairs. More surprising, Linda informs them that one the day the Seawitch set sail for the final time, Cas refused the services of his usual captain, John Reeve. Instead, Cas hired Gary Fielding, a young captain with a dare devil reputation, who also perished with the Seawitch.

The investigation of the Seawitch takes a turn for the bizarre when Linda Starret discloses that one of the Seawitch's occupants was a woman named Shelly Knight. When Solis investigates the mysterious woman, he comes face to face with a woman who not only shares Knight's surname, but also an uncanny resemblance to the woman who went down with the Seawitch. As Solis struggled to convince himself that this could not be the same woman, Harper's sixth sense tells her there is something unworldly about this mysterious lookalike.

Harper and Solis' relentless search for the Seawitch leads them to a mysterious legend that the Seawitch was built from material left over from another doomed boat named the Valencia. Rumors circulate that the Valencia was cursed. Harper and Solis must find the connection between the two doomed boats and the appearance of a woman who bears a strong resemblance to a woman long thought dead.

In this latest addition to the Greywalker series, Kat Richardson takes lovers of the paranormal by storm in this wickedly suspenseful tale of a missing ship. Harper's paranormal gifts will delight readers who love plenty of otherworldly activity in their novels. Even readers without a passion for the supernatural will appreciate this page-turner mystery which equally caters to mystery lovers and lovers of the paranormal. SEAWITCH takes readers into the mysterious world of mermaids and other creatures who haunt the deepest and darkest corners of the sea.
