Author(s): 

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)
