In the aftermath of the Civil War, Ophelia Wylde joins the western exodus. A true psychic, she has turned to fakery to support herself. She’s headed to Colorado when her train stops for a few minutes at Dodge City. She is identified as a murderer and is stopped from re-boarding. For money to pay her lawyer, she stages a performance, contacting the dead before a packed house. Only handsome bounty hunter Jack Calder disbelieves her talents. Then something goes terribly wrong, and the entire town is after her. (KENSINGTON, Jul., 272 pp., $7.99)
