Following her disastrous marriage, Aubrey Glenn has managed to carve out a niche for herself with her self-help book The Mind's Eye and her creative imagery seminars. But Aubrey has never considered herself a psychic and is disconcerted when a former teacher sends her nephew to request Aubrey's assistance in finding a missing family.

Rancher and ex-rodeo champ Jesse Barrett figures his aunt is probably barking up the wrong tree, but as his cousin Pete Ferrell and family have been missing for more a year, any help is better than no help.

Both Aubrey and Jesse are stunned when she has a vivid image of blood and death after handling a picture of the Ferrells. Somehow she knows the family was murdered and buried in a remote location. Jesse has always figured con man Harlan Caine is responsible for the family's disappearance but has no evidence to prove his suspicions.

After all this time, Harlan Caine is not about to let some woman mess up his lucrative plans. Can Aubrey's newly discovered talents help keep her alive?

Author Phoebe Conn returns with an engaging tale of murder, justice and passionate love. Ms. Conn's fans will be thrilled with her new romantic offering. (June, 348 pp., $5.50)
