Life is already bad enough after Tisha Adams loses both her job and her beautiful Manhattan apartment. Living in a musty garage apartment and working for her uncle in Queens, her life is upended when she witnesses a murder on her train commute.

When the body disappears, she teams up with Detective Murphy, a man with mysterious abilities. But Tisha is keeping a secret of her own, a skill she’s always hated and feared. The dead speak to her. And if she touches a person, their past, present and future are revealed to her.

But as the body count rises, and those closest to Tisha are drawn into the nightmare, Tisha’s only choice is to reach out to her estranged grandmother to learn more about her intuitive talents. In a race against the clock to rescue those in danger and solve the murders, she’ll need all her abilities. Even the gift she’s been afraid to use. The dead will speak, but only if she’s willing to listen.

Book Excerpt

I had no choice. It was back home to live with dear old dad. Don’t get me wrong. I love my father and we get along great. There’s just one problem—his new wife.

Returning home after being out on my own since college was not an easy adjustment, especially since my dad went out, found and married a strange woman. Her roots are Southern and her speech difficult to understand at best. She wasn’t at all the type of woman I thought my father would be attracted to. Beatrice was short, chubby and had close-cropped raven black hair. She also loved cats. I have nothing against cats. They don’t like me. They stare, hiss and stalk—and it scares me. It’s almost as if they know about my weak spot. I’m also allergic to them. Moving back into the room I grew up in wasn’t an option.

My family’s home is a beautiful compound in the bucolic town of Locust Valley on the North Shore of Long Island. It is a bedroom community of well-kept large lots and some estates in lush garden settings. It has a wonderful school district and low taxes. It’s for old married people not a twenty-five year old woman looking to make it out in the world. It is boring with little to do after eight pm. Even Starbucks is miles away in Glen Cove and I didn’t have a car.

I managed to shuffle around my huge credit card bills until my father found out about them. I guess after you move and don’t leave a forwarding address or phone number and your bills aren’t being paid on time, the companies start calling your references. I liked pretty things that cost a lot of money, but without an income stream things get dicey. No more shopping sprees for me. Dad paid the cards off and now I pay him. My life sucks.

One positive note; my current living arrangement affords me close proximity to the train station. If I hurry down our long tree-lined driveway, scuttle my butt through a side gate and race to the north side of the platform, I can make it to the tracks in less than two minutes. It’s literally a stone’s throw away.

Since the incident with Ashley all of my friends have deserted me. How could any of them think that I would have anything to do with Trevor? Ashley will figure it out and come around. I just hope it’s sooner so she understands Trevor is using her, much better for her than later.

I made a pact with myself to learn about my telepathic ability and use it to propel me forward. My true love was art. Creating sculptures was my calling, but I couldn’t figure out how to make a living doing it. Perhaps this hiatus in the burbs would help me rediscover myself.

Susan Peterson Wisnewski is an indie author from the northeast. She writes thrillers and paranormal with a sprinkling of chick lit and horror.

From a cruncher of numbers to a stringer of words, she decided it was time to follow her dreams and put down on paper all of those stories that floated around in her head. Raised in New York City and Long Island, she is a consummate shopaholic having been given the gift of style from her mother and grandmother. When not writing, she can be found shopping, visiting museums, gardening, or being walked by her oversized puppy.

Her books are a genre mix all neatly packaged together. Surprise and twists keep her readers guessing and she has been accused of writing books that can’t be put down. Pushing characters to challenges themselves is her trademark as is a creating strong female characters – no damsels in distress here. Her inspiration comes from seeing a situation and then enhancing it to create an unusual story line. And yes, she does see ghosts, or spirits as they prefer to be called and has had her run ins with a fairy or two.
If you have a book club and live on Long Island or in the Southern Vermont area, she’d be happy to come for a visit.

Her latest book is the thriller/paranormal/suspense, BlindSight.
