His partner is killed. His girlfriend takes off. His job is hanging by a thread. Chicago Homicide Detective Ryan Doherty has one last chance to save his career by solving the case of Scott and Carly Redding, husband and wife ad execs that each appear to have died of natural causes...on the same night. There are hundreds of people who could have wanted the Reddings dead, including every ex-employee of their high-powered firm, Town Red Media.
At the top of the list is Catharine Lulling, a former VP at Town Red Media. Ryan becomes obsessed with Catharine: she is charming, intelligent, wealthy, and possesses psychic abilities he can’t even understand. Drawn into her unconventional world, he risks the case-and his life-to find out if she’s the real thing, or the real killer.
