BLOODSTONE

Author(s): 
After jewelry designer Tyler St. Claire is assaulted at a trade show and her hotel room tossed, the local cops treat her like she's the criminal. She doesn't think her day can get any worse, then she discovers that her brother Davie has been kidnapped, and the people holding him want something she supposedly has. The trouble is, Tyler has no idea what!

With the help of agent Evan Bartlock and her two business partners, Tyler cares for her fragile niece, Jane, and realizes that her St. Claire psychic "gift" may not be the curse she thinks. It just might be the only hope they have of finding Davie alive.

But it's a slim hope at best, because it appears that her criminal adversary is equally "gifted." Fast-paced, action-packed and often humorous, this is a one-of-a-kind story. Tyler is a special heroine, and Evan's her match in every way. One can only hope there will be future adventures to savor. (Jan., 384 pp., $6.99)
