Editorial Reviews Review

Suppose you witnessed a crime, but had good reason to believe that if you called the police and told them what you saw your life would be in serious danger of ending very soon after? That's what happens to Kasey Riteman, the completely believable central character in this well-developed first thriller by a commercial photographer with a keen eye for character and detail. Kasey has lots of problems of her own, so when she stumbles on a murder her first impulse is to hide and hope the killer didn't spot her. Then her sense of justice takes over, tempered by justified fear. And when Kasey comes up with what seems like the perfect way to tip off the police without risking her neck, things go from bad to deadly very quickly. An impressive debut from a writer with a natural voice.

From Publishers Weekly

A plucky Nashville steakhouse waitress poses as a clairvoyant in order to track down the killer of a beautiful local socialite in this suspense novel debut, which is nearly sabotaged by overwriting and a slow beginning. Kasey Riteman, 28, is mired in early alcoholism, waking up all too often in strange beds with strange men. After she thwarts the sexual advances of her boss with a good kick and a giant can of green beans, she flees to the countryside, only to get stranded with a flat tire after nightfall. Alone and lost, she witnesses the rape and murder of a beautiful young woman celebrated for her associations with music stars and community leaders. Having identified the killer by his vanity license plate, yet seeking to avoid involvement as an official witness, Kasey concocts a history of past episodes of clairvoyance. Claiming she saw the victim's murder in a dream, she enlists the aid of an ambitious local female TV news anchor to help find the missing woman's body. When it is discovered that the victim had been taping bedroom conversations with her politically powerful lovers, and that several of the tapes are missing, Kasey is suspected by both the cops and the killer of knowing much more than she has let on. Though bogged down in the first half by unnecessary exposition and internal musings, the plot and the writing pick up in time, moving more surely toward an action-packed, if less than fully satisfying, resolution that has sequel written all over it. 50,000 first printing; $50,000 ad/promo; Doubleday Book Club featured alternate; Japanese rights to Kodansha; film rights to Grand Productions.
