Description

A psychic investigates a mysterious disappearance high in the Appalachian Mountains in this novel from a "Grand Master of her craft" (Barbara Michaels). It's a legacy Christy Loren never wanted. The unwitting inheritor of her mother's psychic gifts, the Long Island librarian assists in police investigations, but they've become too hard for her to bear. Too many victims. Too many shallow graves. So she's fled to the peaceful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains to stay with her aunt Nona. But Christy is soon drawn back into a world of terrifying visions—those of a female hiker who died under suspicious circumstances and an ethereal beauty named Deirdre who vanished into the mountain mist. Warned by her mother's eerie premonitions, threatened by strangers, and aided by Deirdre's tormented and attractive husband, Christy is beginning to see things no one else can. If there's a link between the two mysteries, Christy will find it—if she's not afraid to look deeper. New York Times–bestselling and Edgar Award–winning author Phyllis A. Whitney "piles on the suspense" in this novel of superstition, second-sight, and uncanny romantic tension (Publishers Weekly). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Phyllis A. Whitney including rare images from the author's estate.

      • bioText:

        Born in Yokohama, Japan, on September 9, 1903, Phyllis A. Whitney was a prolific author of award-winning adult and children's fiction. Her sixty-year writing career and the publication of seventy-six books, which together sold over fifty million copies worldwide, established her as one of the most successful mystery and romantic suspense writers of the twentieth century and earned her the title "The Queen of the American Gothics."

        Whitney resided in several places, including New Jersey. She traveled to every location mentioned in her books in order to better depict the settings of her stories. She earned the Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Award in 1988, the Agatha in 1990, and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of Midland Authors in 1995. Whitney was working on her autobiography at the time of her passing at the age of 104.

      • content:

        February 1, 1989
        Like many of Whitney's ( Poinciana ) 32 previous novels, this romantic mystery features smooth plotting, skillful foreshadowing and a determined, inquisitive young heroine in danger. Long Island-based clairvoyant Christy Loren has used her psychic talent to locate the bodies of missing persons. When her work becomes enervating and perilous, Christy seeks refuge at her Aunt Nona's home in the tranquil Virginia countryside. There, however, she warily starts investigating a double mystery: the death of Rose Vaughn and the disappearance of Deirdre Mitchell, a childlike, dreamy woman fascinated by mysticism. Sensing that Deirdre encountered someone evil, Christy is suspicous of both forbiddingly aloof Victor Birdcall and Eve Corey, who seems curiously evasive. Aided by her mother, a famed channeler of spirits, and Deirdre's attractive husband, Christy keeps sleuthing, even after envisioning her own death. Whitney piles on the suspense by prefacing each chapter with ominous first-person observations from the unnamed culprit. The chilling effect is marred, however, by the glib, unrewarding conclusion. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club dual main selection.
