Private investigator RB Kendrick makes her living nailing cheating spouses, digging up other dirt to help in a divorce, finding long-lost relatives, and occasionally sniffing out criminal activity and fraud. When she takes a job to find a missing girl, she has no idea she is headed for the most dangerous case of her career. Usually, her ability to read minds gives her an edge. But when the people she’s hunting are also telepaths, that advantage is limited. The search takes her into the dark underbelly of telepathic society, where anything, and anyone, is for sale. She discovers that telepathic women and girls are being trafficked as the ultimate sex slaves. With people trying to kill her, she’s on the run, not knowing who she can trust. Will she find the missing girl, or become a victim herself?

A paranormal thriller set in the world of The Telepathic Clans.


Bella's Thoughts...
This book is a fast-paced mystery/thriller that tackles a troubling "real world" situation, but with a paranormal twist.

Something I really liked about this book, and all of Kingsolver's Telepathic Clans series, is that the female lead characters are tough chicks, powerful in their own right. While there's romance and sex in their worlds, it does not rule their identities: they take care of themselves, and they take care of their own. RB is no different. She is tough, beautiful, powerful, although not without her flaws.

The writing flows along and carries you along with it, and there is plenty of intrigue in trying to figure out who RB can trust or not as she dives deeper into the mystery before her.

I grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico, among writers, artists and weird Hispanic and Native American myths and folklore. I've lived all over the U.S. and earned a living doing everything from making silver and turquoise jewelry, to construction to computers. I currently split my time between Baltimore and Albuquerque.

I made silver and turquoise jewelry for almost a decade, ended up in nursing school, then took a master's in business. Along the way I worked in construction, as a newspaper editor, and somehow found a career working with computers.
