The Ouderkirk House
A forensic psychic medium, a haunted church rectory, and a forgotten crime, spell trouble for sleepy Whidbey Island, Washington.
Renovations of the abandoned house are fraught with thefts and eerie mishaps. Famous state-wide for her psychic gift, and especially her ability to locate missing children, Ruth O'Neill reluctantly agrees to look into it. She is saddled with a skeptical sidekick; Island county sheriff's deputy, Gene Harlowe. Following her visions, and despite Gene's insults and reluctance to believe, they discover a long-forgotten crime.
In 1968, something took place at the rectory that rocked the tiny village of San de Fuca. A double murder, rape and kidnapping, for which a Native American circus roustabout was quickly convicted and hung. But, did the authorities have the right perpetrator, or was he a convenient scapegoat?
Someone or something in the rectory wants Ruth and Gene to get to the bottom of the cold case. They set out to discover who the real killer is, but it's a difficult, circuitous journey. While the house seems to be leading them in the right direction, obstacles bar their way, and people in power aren't afraid to target them for death.
In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, lies a devastated landscape and people along the Gulf coast. Now, as rebuilding has begun in New Orleans, a death rocks the city. A Pulitzer Prize winning journalist is found shot in his home, an apparent suicide.
Dr. Mina Meloncon McKenna, Coroner of Orleans parish, doesn't buy that. She delves into his death while unrest builds in the city that care forgot.
The first anniversary of Katrina's landfall is fast approaching. Just when it seems the entire parish will blow up in violence, McKenna gets pulled into the case of five missing children. When two of them turn up in unmarked graves, New Orleans residents demand answers. Is there a child killer walking the streets? What's their connection to the journalist?
