ISBN 0451213637

In Royal Oak, Michigan, Abby Cooper tries an online dating service since she hasn’t had a date in years. She believes that once she proves she is a psychic, men are scared off. Her date with Dutch goes smoothly but when she tells him that the child who was abducted in the mall is dead and the mother and another close relative are the perpetrators he cuts her off. She doesn’t hear from him for a week.

Abby senses she is being followed and she sees the stalker. The next day he shows her his gold shield and tells her the mother and brother is in custody. He and his partner spent the last week investigating Abby and psychics are not in his belief system. Another of Abby’s client is brutally murdered; Abby feels guilty that she didn’t give Allison another appointment when she requested it. Taking it upon herself, she learns her sister supposedly committed suicide shortly before her wedding but Abby’s sixth sense says she was murdered by the same person who killed Allison Now she has to find out who he is and give the name to Dutch.

This is the start of a great new series due in large part to the heroine who is not afraid to use her powers to help people in crises. Up until Allison’s case she never worked with the police because of their skepticism but once Dutch gets over the shock, he accepts Abby and her powers completely. The mystery is well constructed and there is plenty of action in this amateur sleuth tale but readers will love ABBY COOPER, PSYCHIC DETECTIVE because the storyline is well written and refreshingly unique.
