Elizabeth O'Toole has finally gotten her life where she likes it. She plays harp for the local symphony. She shops high fashion labels at vintage stores. She'd recovered from a tragic past and she has her close friends Catherine and Alan to thank. After suppressing her extra sensory perception with intense study of her harp, she finds her music is suddenly connecting with a new audience; particularly a young girl, Emma Brady, who has been murdered. With each ghostly visit, the hauntings grow more intense and more terrifying. Investigating the case is ruggedly handsome Detective Mike Flannery. Known for his fast thinking and bravery on the force, he has his own past and reputation he's trying to keep at bay. Coming from a rich and powerful family, he's out to prove he can fight for justice by being a good cop rather than moving up the ranks through nepotism. Mike and Elizabeth's paths collide at Emma's funeral. The daughter of a Senator, the family wishes the investigation done quickly and quietly. Mike can't close the case because some of the pieces just don't fit together. Elizabeth holds the key to the murder mystery but will he believe her and her unusual connection to the dead victim? Will she and Alan find a way to help the dead tell their own stories? A novel that spans two worlds. Two time periods. One part science fiction. One part paranormal mystery. All romance. Intertwined is a love story of the most unlikely couple. A killer is on the loose and both of them are on the hit list. If they work together, Mike just might solve the case before more people fall victim. But he can't do it alone. He'll need the help of Elizabeth as she connects her living world to that of the dead. She'll need Mikes protection and he'll need the talent and bravery of The Harpist.
