Overview

Beyond the shores of Hope's Peak, North Carolina, evil waits as his next victim approaches. He'll make her a princess like the others...

Detective Jane Harper can't shake the image of the young woman discovered in a field--eyes closed, a crown of woven vines on her head. She expects macabre murders like this in her native San Francisco, not here. Jane and her partner, Stu, vow to catch the killer, but in this town, that's easier said than done. The police department is in the grips of a wide-reaching scandal that could topple the entire force, and Jane and Stu face a series of dead ends. Until they meet Ida Lane.

Ida knows too well the evil that lurks in the cornfields. Tortured by her mother's murder years before, Ida is paralyzed by the fear that she could be next. As the killer grows bolder, Jane must persuade Ida to use her remarkable gifts to help in the investigation. It's a decision that brings them closer to the killer...maybe too close.

In this solid series launch from Healey, best known for his Far from Home SF series, Det. Jane Harper, of Hopes Peak, N.C., and her police colleagues struggle to find and stop the man who has raped and killed two young women. A witness says he was wearing a white bag over his head evocative of the KKK. Harpers boss, Captain Morelli, gives Harper an old file of a similar case investigated by now retired detective Lloyd Claymore. Claymore tells Harper that there were many more such killings years ago, which were covered up by the powerful people who ran Hopes Peak. He points her in the direction of Ida Lane, whose mother was a victim in 1985. Reclusive Ida possesses a paranormal ability to sense anothers thoughts when touching them, and she and a skeptical Harper make an odd team as an increasingly reckless killer continues to strike. Healey breaks no new ground, but he plows a fertile field in this blend of detection and the supernatural. Agent: Sharon Pelletier, Dystel & Goderich Literary Management. (Jan.)
