Format: Paperback
Enter Elixabeth Chase a sort of Physic Detective, hired by Cop Tom McGowan to investigate the death of Janice Freeman a one time crush of Tom's from long ago in High School. Elizabeth is a very likable character full of self doubt and wry sense of humour she is also Physic and able to see Auras, she is hired by Tom to look into the car crash that killed Janice Freeman a very lovely girl that worked for Pacific Properties, was her death an accident or was it premeditated ? this is what Elizabeth is hired to find out. We are introduced to quite a range of characters from Alan Katz Janice's Ex boyfriend to Pia who runs a bikini shop. I look forward to reading all the books in this series because Elizabeth is a very likeable character with a lot of scope to find out more about her personality and her gifts. Do yourself a favour and read this book and you too will want to read more about Ms Chase.

This was the first of this author's books I think, and I loved the prose, the plot, the setting and the characters. If I could give it more stars, I would. Wish she hadn't stopped recounting the very eventful and sometimes eerie life of Dr Elizabeth Chase...

Lawrence's star is sure to rise 18 Jun. 2000
By Donna Errett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Well crafted girl detective novel with a unique twist. Beautiful, sexy, former parapsychologist with extrasensory gifts and a private investigator's license is hired by, of all improbable people, a hunk of a California cop. Tom McGowan has a gut feeling that the death of a bright, young law student is not the tragic, but routine traffic accident it seems. PI Elizabeth Chase combines detective work with psychic insights to find out whodunit. Author Lawrence's talent is to make you care about her characters while holding your interest with plot twists. Certainly hope this is just the first of many Dr. Elizabeth Chase mysteries.
P.S. If you find a first hardcover edition of this first Dr. Elizabeth Chase novel, hold on to it. It'll be worth big bucks soon.

Best debut novel I've since read Nevada B's Track of the Cat 16 Nov. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Martha C. Lawrence's "Murder in Scorpio" is the best first novel I've read in years. The novel's heroine, Dr. Elizabeth Chase, Investigator/Parapsycholgist, is not only strong-willed and intelligent, but made vulnerable by having (legitimate) psychic abilities which allow her to sense and feel the sensations, emotions and motivation of both victims and perpetrators of crime. "Murder in Scorpio" is a very interesting read. (I stayed up all night and read the whole book without putting it down!) Since, I've really taken Ms. Lawrence's sleuth to heart and have read her next book:" Cold Heart of Capricorn" (chillingly good!). I'm now waiting for her third Elizabeth Chase tale to make its way to the printed page. Martha C. Lawrence (a Sister in Crime author) was nominated for the Agatha, Anthony Bouchercon and Edgar literary awards for "Murder in Scorpio" - winning the Edgar for Best First novel. Well deserved! For a cozy night in front of the fireplace curled up with a great book, "Murder in Scorpio" is a winner. Don't miss it!

This book is a winner! 14 Jun. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Martha Lawrence has created a great read and is a wonderful addition to the mystery genre. Her characters are believable and the plot winds and twists to a memorable conclusion. But don't start this one until you have plenty of free time, you don't be able to put it down! She has handled the primary character, Dr. Elizabeth Chase, who has psychic premonitions, very well. It is done within a realistic and plausible plot. Well done, Martha!

Good story, writing kind of weak 19 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed this book. I am new to mysteries and found this one to be compelling, but I was turned off somewhat by her writing styled. It seemed more like a teen-age romance novel in some ways, especially in some of the description. However, I am anxious to read her second attempt to see if the writing has improved. I think she has great potential.
