It's been more than six months since her husband's brutal death, and Julia Ransom is just beginning to breathe again. She loved her husband, renowned psychic August Ransom, but the media frenzy that followed his murder sapped what little strength she had left. Now, after dinner with friends, strolling along San Francisco's Pier 39, she realizes that she's happy. Standing at the railing, she savors the sounds around her -- tourists, seals on a barge -- and for a moment enjoys the sheer normalcy of it all. And then it comes to an end. Out of nowhere she's approached by a respectable-looking man who distracts her with conversation before violently attacking her and throwing her toward the railing. If it hadn't been for Special Agent Cheney Stone, out to stretch his legs between courses at a local restaurant, Julia would have vanished into the bay's murky depths. Not only does he save her from a watery grave, but he senses a connection between her assault and her husband's death, and sets out to serve as her protector while reopening August Ransom's murder investigation.

*** 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.
