As she’s coming to terms with her new skills, she uses them to solve the cold case murder of Sarah Alexander and her two children. Stifled by the limits of her job as a public servant, Katie retires and opens Walk-In Investigations Third-Eye Detective Agency in partnership with her friend Vicki, a psychic.
Still navigating the waters of her evolving skills, Katie takes on the most personal case of her career. A case her detective father, a thirty-year veteran, could never solve before his own retirement. The horrific murder of philanthropist James Baxter. As Katie plunges into the twenty-year-old murder, her excitement turns to frustration. James rejects her attempts to channel, and her father is skeptical about using psychic abilities to solve crimes. Katie also has to come to terms with the losses in her own life that drove her to try to kill herself.
To understand why a spirit wouldn’t want his murder solved, she crosses into other dimensions and observes the powerful forces standing in her way. Katie delves deeper and exposes secrets in James’ family and recognizes the powerful bond between the victim and his murderer. Will Katie and her team be able to solve this cold case, or will her profound encounters in the hereafter cause her to let the killer go free?
In our busy, work-filled lives, it’s easy to forget the simple things: love, loyalty, forgiveness, kindness, and faith. Some people will spend years searching for these vital elements, but author and animal-lover Joyce Kostakis found them a little closer to home: in her beloved dogs, Cooper and Max.
The lessons are invaluable. Cooper and Max's stories will melt your heart and change the way you see the world. Their loyalty, trust, and ability to live in the moment will inspire you to let go, enjoy life, be present and cherish every moment. This quick read will leave a long-lasting smile.
Dog Inspired Lessons for humans provides big life lessons with heart-warming photos that show us dogs aren’t just man’s best friend—they can be man’s (and woman’s!) best teacher too.
