Meet Private Investigator, David Randall. Discouraged by a recent deadbeat dad case, he wonders if he should close the detective agency. He operates his business from his psychic friend Camden's boarding house at 302 Grace Street in Parkland, North Carolina. But then, he gets a psychic message from his dead daughter telling him it is important to continue doing so. David takes on another case hoping to close the case quickly, but then his psychic partner falls off the roof of his house and is unable to be psychic.

As David struggles to find a girl's deadbeat dad, he becomes entangled in another case of a serial killer who collects blonde hair. As he juggles both cases, will his psychic partner regain his skills in time to stop the blonde killer before he strikes close to their lives? What about the dead beat dad who he has found? Will he continue to ignore his wife and daughter or will he take responsibility finally?

This is a tautly-written mystery with wonderfully conceived characters. The psychic aspect adds depth and dimension to the carefully plotted mystery. I highly recommend this book for any mystery fan who likes an on the edge thriller.
