Marilyn Pappano leads off the New Year with another sultry romance in the Big Easy as a beautiful psychic is singed by the burning touch of MURPHYS LAW (4.5) when her former lover, a tough-as-nails cop, persuades her to take part in a sting operation designed to bring a murderer to justice. The real danger, however, comes when they confront their troubled past. A master of characterization, Ms. Pappano makes our hearts glow with empathy as an intriguingly different heroine and compelling hero deal with both professional and personal crises against a backdrop of chilling danger.
