Jane Perry has resigned from the police department and is trying to make a living as a private investigator. However, her past is rising to haunt her. Seeking comfort at an AA meeting, she meets a woman whose granddaughter was murdered many years ago. This woman discovers what Jane does for a living and asks Jane to drive with her from Colorado to California to find her granddaughter's killer whom she's convinced is still murdering people.

Jane is somewhat skeptical when she finds out that the lady is a New Age devotee but she's desperate for work. They head out on the road, gathering information about the killer, and themselves, along the way. Jane has had several incidents happen to her that border on the paranormal, but is a complete skeptic in that area. But as the road points to a fundamentalist church, belief and faith propel her towards her to a deadly confrontation.

I enjoyed this book because of the plot line of faith and paranormal events mixed with a murder mystery. I enjoy Laurel Dewey as a writer and look forward to her next book. I give this book and A+!

A+! - (96-100%)

May you read well and often
