Romance Suspense | Contemporary
The police firmly believe that Julia Ransom was guilty of
the brutal murder of her husband, renowned psychic August
Ransom. However, after six months of investigation and
media frenzy, they donâ€™t have enough evidence, and she is
at last free of their scrutiny, both the police and the
lurking paparazzi. One afternoon she walks from her Pacific
Heights home to Fishermanâ€™s Wharf, quite alone, unwatched,
and, she realizes, happy. Standing at the railing on Pier
39, she savors the sounds around her â€“ tourists, countless
fat seals on the barges â€“ and for a moment enjoys the sheer
normalcy of it all.
It suddenly comes to an end when a respectable-looking man
distracts her with conversation before striking her
unconscious and heaving her over the railing into San
Francisco Bay. If it hadnâ€™t been for Special Agent Cheney
Stone, Julia would have drowned. Cheney quickly realizes
the attempt on her life has to connect to the murder of her
husband, and reopens the investigation with the SFPD.
Meanwhile, in Maestro, Virginia, Sheriff Dixon Noble â€“ last
seen in Point Blank â€“ learns about a woman named Charlotte
Pallack, whose extraordinary resemblance to his vanished
wife Christie, gone for three years, sends Dix across the
country. Although he knows in his heart that this woman
canâ€™t possibly be his missing wife, Dix is compelled to see
her with his own eyes.
Once in San Francisco, Dix and Cheneyâ€™s paths cross,
brought together by FBI Special Agents Dillon Savich and
Lacey Sherlock. Together they begin to unlock the mystery
behind Charlotte Pallackâ€™s identity as well as the forces
behind Julia Ransomâ€™s attempted murder and the vicious
murder of her husband.
The most fascinating aspect of the case is the
extraordinary cast of psychics they meet as they push deep
into the intriguing and complex world of visions, mind
benders, and communicators to the dead.
