From Publishers Weekly
Part paranormal whodunit, part urban fantasy, Weldon's lively debut introduces Zoë Martinique, a professional snoop based in Atlanta, Ga., with the ability to project herself out of body and spy on illicit activities. Things get complicated after Zoë becomes an astral witness to murder, and the killer, who can not only see her but also touch her, leaves her branded with a red hand print and a shock of white hair that just keeps getting thicker. Zoë teams up with sexy cop Daniel Frasier, who thinks infamous televangelist Theodore Rollins is somehow behind the murder, but Zoë's also pretty sure that the dead man's boss, Koba Hirokumi, president of Visitar Inc., knows a lot more than he's telling. Before long, what began as an apparent case of industrial espionage turns into a battle against evil from another dimension. Weldon keeps Zoë and her readers off balance with brisk pacing and brain-wrenching plot twists, drawing the story to a satisfying close while leaving enough loose ends to set up Zoë's next adventure.

Zoe Martinque is capable of traveling outside her body, literally. After discovering her gift for astral projection during a rape, Zoe channeled her skill into a profitable enterprise, marketing herself as a private investigator with special abilities. But one night while out on a job, she comes across a man being murdered in an office building by a creature in a trench coat that can see her. Terrified, Zoe flees the scene, but not before the thing grabs her, leaving a mark on her wrist. At an anonymous client's behest, Zoe returns to the building the next day to spy on a meeting between the head of the company and Daniel Fraiser, the handsome police officer investigating the death. Drawn to both Daniel and the case, Zoe finds herself determined to pursue the creature in the trench coat, even as it becomes increasingly dangerous for her. With a quick-witted heroine and truly frightening baddies, Weldon offers a fantastic kickoff to what promises to be a vibrant new series. Huntley, Kristine
