Book Description

Jan 1998
A serial rapist is on the loose, but Elizabeth Chase's psychic gifts seem to be letting her down. She can only get the vaguest impressions of the man - his black clothing, his white fingers, his cold, appalling mind. Then she tries hypnosis and makes the rapist's bravest victim remember not the attach which has already put her in hospital, but the rapist's next attempt. The one in which he will try to silence her before he goes after Dr Chase.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is one of my favourite authors... 4 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This author draws you into the persona of her psychic investigator heroine, Dr Elizabeth Chase. She's only written a few books and I've read them all but one, so have only that one to look forward to. Her last book was written/published in 2001, and this turns out to be a clue as to why she stopped writing this series (see: [...]). What a shame she feels this way, but 7/11 affected everyone differently.

A Kid's Review
I found this book and the series that it is a part of too be a very enjoyable read .one that you can sit down and identify with , I also found it easy to read and so I purchase the rest in the series.I thing it is a series that you can sit down read it and it is not to taxing that you have to go back and re-read a previous page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perceptive....Not Wierd! 19 Sep 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I have to admit when I read the first Martha C. Lawrence book(Murder in Scorpio) I was a skeptic about the physic hook. Let me just say I was quickly convinced that I had made a good choice of what to read. Dr. Elizabeth Chase is clever, insightful, funny and oh yeah, she sometimes percieves something before it happens! I found the story to be very believeable as well as thrilling and exciting. The love interest is also good. I am looking foreward to the third in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars PULL UP A CHAIR BY THE FIRE WITH THIS ONE! 29 April 1998
By John Russell<jadr@wcc.net> - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Martha C. Lawrence's psychic protagonist, Elizabeth Chase, is a refreshing entry into the genre of mysteries, particularly those engaging the realm of the paranormal. As I'm a professional psychic with over 25 years experience performing readings for my clients, and having personally encountered a barrage of extraordinary paranormal phenomena, I can vouch for the fact that Elizabeth Chase's experiences come across as realistic and credible. She's oftentimes as perplexed by her psychic ability's inconsistency (or rather maybe her occasional inability to decipher its messages) as she is enthralled when accurately aided by it. Not only does Martha C. Lawrence accurately portray the foibles of the paranormal realm in her writings, she has keen insights into human nature and relationships, and her writing is top-notch: fast-paced, consistent, believable and intriguing. Elizabeth Chase comes across as a protagonist you not only can identify with, but that you feel you already know. And the friendship is a delightful one. You don't have to be a fan of the paranormal to enjoy these excellent reads, just a mystery lover who enjoys fresh, exciting writing by an award-nominated author who is sure to continue to make a splash in the field! Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as gimmicky as it sounds 23 Jan 2001
By Tracy L. Benton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was a little worried by the idea of a psychic detective. I thought the book would be full of channeling and seances. But Dr. Elizabeth Chase is primarily a detective, and she uses common sense and skill as her main tools--her psychic gift is only occasionally helpful. She is a very professional woman, a doctor of psychology, and she commands respect from those she meets. Unfortunately I can't give this book 5 stars, because I guessed who dunnit the moment the character was introduced. But I plan to read more in the series.
5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific suspense! 24 Feb 2012

Couldn't put this down once I began reading! Loved the psychic intuition woven throughout the storyline. Every bit as mesmerizing a read as Victoria Laurie's Psychic Eye Mystery series.
