"Offers a superb weaving of a superior plot line with an intriguing cast of characters. The authenticity of the suspects leaves you guessing to the last minute about whodunit! The characters are well developed and you truly get to know the inner workings of the main character, Claudia Hershey. She's the kind of person you want to follow through additional ingenious plots in what will hopefully be a series of sequels. Write on!"

"Readers who enjoy a police procedural will find this a delightful read filled with action under every bush but almost totally void of gore. Author Laura Belgrave creates a cerebral storyline that provides clues along the way so that the fan can put the puzzle pieces together to try to solve this pleasing who-done-it."

A dead psychic on Halloween night. Heroin filtering into the town's schools. A sullen ex-con with a beef of his own, and a legislator with secrets to protect. Not what homicide detective Claudia Hershey expected when she moved to Indian Run, a smudge on Florida's map. But there's no turning back when the killer makes things personal.
