OUT OF BODY
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance
The first book in Cameron's new Court of Angels trilogy is atmospheric and often downright creepy. Cameron's characters are well matched, and the killer's true identity is quite a surprise.
When a stranger entrusts her with a red lacquer dollhouse from the 19th century, Marley Millet is puzzled. An energy sentient, Marley's aware that the house is a portal to another place -- where she can see into what may be the future. Female nightclub singers are being murdered in New Orleans, and Marley is "witnessing" the crimes -- but she has no way to use the small amount information she has. The police are skeptical, and ex-cop turned writer Gray Fisher is more of a hindrance than a help.
Gray has a vested interest in the case -- he's been writing an article about the murdered women and is, at one point, a possible suspect. And once he's met Marley, Gray wants to protect her -- from herself, and from the ancient evil that's stalking her. (MIRA, Mar., 400 pp., $7.99)
