“Lisa Brunette’s FRAMED AND BURNING is a brilliant, suspenseful whodunit…” - Anthony Award-winning writer of the Inspector Chen series, Qui Xiaolong

What if you could ‘slip’ into the dreams of a killer? This family of PIs can. They use their psychic dream ability to solve crimes, and that isn’t easy.

It was supposed to be a much-needed vacation in Miami, meant to snap Cat out of a persistent depression. But when her great uncle’s studio goes up in flames, killing his assistant, Cat must find out who’s really to blame.
In Bound to the Truth…
The dreamslippers don’t quite trust their client. Did Nina Howell really fall under the spell of a domineering, conservative talk show host—as her wife claims?

You know - I'm a fan of mysteries. Actually, I need to review more mysteries.
But I digress (in the first sentence, already!).
Mysteries are best when they are complex and slowly unraveled. Well, taking it a step further is the first of the Dreamslippers series where Cat goes into people's dreams to unravel the mysteries. Cat is an apprentice, so it's a great way to start a series to have a protagonist the reader can at least semi-identify with. Unless, of course, you ARE a dreamslipper (and if you are, message me!).
This particular book involves going in to do detective work in a fundamentalist church. Now, maybe it's just my psychology-cult-knowledge-loving mind, but this was particularly intriguing for me. Maybe it will be for you too?
Through some fantastic storytelling, we are plunged into this world of dreams and curiosity. Cat is wonderful and real in that she makes mistakes, but keeps moving forward. Also, the idea of detective work including psychic abilities is just plain awesome. I definitely recommend this book (and series) for fans of Kelley Armstrong, Patricia Brigs, and Karen Marie Moning.
