Jackal in the Mirror – Book Three of the Perils of a Reluctant Psychic
Eureka, California, the Victorian seaport famous for its paranormal stories and tales of hauntings, is where psychic sleuth Sarah Thompson once again takes center stage. She’s thrust into a disturbing mystery when she finds an old book in a timeworn bookstore, and a terrifying scream escapes from its pages.
The voice emanating from the book insists that Sarah must help. But refuses to say who, how, or why. The only clue it offers is an ominous novel filled with scenes of illicit passion, deception, and murder. When the book mysteriously transforms into a collection of poems, Sarah is stumped.
Can she decipher the secrets held by the defiant spirit in the haunted book in time to prevent another murder?
Away from the safety of her husband and home, Sarah is on her own to follow a perilous search to uncover the threat and save the lives of unsuspecting victims.
