The visions that guide a teacher to investigate the death of a student’s sister also put the teacher in danger.
Her unusual skills have put Lee Barrett (Murder Go Round, 2017, etc.) at the heart of more than her fair share of mysteries. Though she still isn’t sure why or how it happens, Lee sees visions in reflections that help her solve crimes. This time around, a student in Lee’s Television Production class at Tabitha Trumbull Academy of the Arts needs her special skills. Dorothy Alden’s sister, Emily, died under mysterious circumstances, and although the Salem police think it was an accidental overdose, Dorothy is sure it was murder. In fact, Dorothy’s moved all the way from Alaska to lead her own investigation. Lee is dubious until she has a series of visions that suggest Dorothy may be on to something. Not one to go it alone, Lee involves the rest of her class in the investigation along with Pete, her policeman boyfriend. Their investigations reveal a good deal about Emily’s work at Happy Shores Real Estate and about the handsome, mysterious neighbor who may be hiding something about his relationship with Emily. As Lee learns more about Emily’s life, she senses that someone may be investigating her own life—and that she may be in the very same danger Emily was facing.
The stakes are low, with a conclusion that’s more predictable than mysterious, but that doesn’t stop Perry from leading readers on a diverting journey.
