The police are convinced that Julia Ransom was guilty of the brutal murder of her husband, renowned psychic August Ransom. But after six months of investigation and media frenzy, she is free of their scrutiny, because of the lack of evidence. One afternoon she walks from her Pacific Heights home to Fisherman's Wharf, alone, unwatched - and, she realizes, happy. Standing at the railing on Pier 39, she savors the sounds around her - tourists, countless seals on the barges - 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 weren't for Special Agent Cheney Stone, Julia would've drown. Cheney quickly realizes the attempt on Julia's life has to connect to the murder of her husband, and reopens the investigation with the SFPD. Meanwhile, in Maestro, Virginia, Sheriff Dixon Noble - last seen in Point Blank - learns about a woman named Charlotte Pallack, whose extraordinary resemblance to his vanished wife, Christie, gone for three years, sends him across the country. Although in his heart he knows that this woman can't possibly be his missing wife, Dix is compelled to see her with his own eyes. In San Francisco, Dix's and Cheney's paths cross, brought together by FBI Special Agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock. All four begin to unlock the mystery behind Charlotte Pallack's identity, as well as the forces behind Julia Ransom'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 communications to the dead. As the stakes and the body count rise, Savich, Sherlock, Dix, and Cheney fight for answers - and their lives.

*** STARS Six months after the death of her husband, renowned psychic August Ransom, Julia is just beginning to recover. The media frenzy that followed his murder left her exhausted. Strolling along San Francisco's Pier 39, she realizes she is starting to feel happy again until an assailant attacks her.
Special Agent Cheney Stone, out to stretch his legs, interrupts the man, who then throws Julia into the bay. Not only does FBI agent Stone save her, but he comes to believe there is a a connection between her assault and her husband's death. Meanwhile, in Virginia, Sheriff Dixon Noble (another recurring Coulter protagonist )still mourns his wife, Christie, who vanished three years earlier. His life, too, is just getting back to normal when he learns of a San Francisco woman named Charlotte Pallack, whose shocking resemblance to Christie leads him to go there. Though he knows in his heart that she can't possibly be his wife, Dix is compelled to see her with his own eyes. Inevitably the two cases interact. Agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock, from San Francisco connections prove essential in unlocking the mystery behind Charlotte Pallack's identity as well as the forces behind Julia Ransom's attempted murder. Ms Coulter always writes a good page-turner. Recommend if you like the genre.
