Sometimes, it’s only the guilty who can save the innocent…
A whodunnit with extras…
Kezia Lee, a young woman of gypsy stock, operates on the wrong side of the law to help her “psychic consultant” mother snare clients. But it’s Kezia who possesses paranormal powers, albeit ones she can’t control or understand.
Detective Inspector David Ross has no life outside the police. He’s haunted by the memory of the murder of a former girlfriend and frustrated by the bureaucracy and politics of his profession. Like Kezia, he’s given up any hope of a meaningful relationship.
When a prostitute is found murdered in a Norwich park, Kezia becomes a suspect, although soon all the evidence points to a wounded ex-serviceman. Only Ross doubts the accused man’s guilt, and he’s not going to be allowed to investigate further.
Ross recognises Kezia’s abilities and recruits her to help him. But soon it’s clear that the motive may lie in the dark secrets of powerful and dangerous men, and Ross fears he’s sent a woman with whom he’s fallen in love on what could be a fatal mission.
