The always entertaining Stillings kicks off her Darling Detective series with a bang. Filled with just the right amount of humor, suspense and passion -- as well as a touch of the paranormal -- this story works terrifically well on all levels. As a storyteller, Stillings just keeps getting better and better!

Inspector Nate Darling is definitely not into the "woo-woo stuff." So when he learns of a "dream interpreter" who may have information on a murder, he is highly skeptical. Tabitha March is used to people denying her psychic ability, and it usually doesn't bother her. But when she has a dream about Nate before she meets him, she knows she's in trouble.

Tabitha has a client who's been having vivid dreams of murder and keeping a dream diary about them. When those murders start coming true, she knows she must go to the police. The problem is, her client has given her a fake name, so they have little to go on. Nate is now torn between believing Tabitha's claims and worrying that if she gets further involved, she could become her client's next victim. (AVON, Mar., 384 pp., $5.99)
