Retribution

A Psychic Detective Kate Pierce Crime Thriller

Book 1
C.M. Sutter
330

The violent drug-related murders of two prominent attorneys have the homicide division of the Chicago Police Department scrambling for answers, but without clues, a motive, or a suspect, not even the FBI can track down the killer. 
With the media demanding an arrest and at their wits’ end, the Chicago Police Department makes an urgent call to the Washburn County Sheriff’s Office in hopes of bringing in Kate Pierce, a psychic detective, on the case. A reluctant Kate agrees only when word comes that Jesse McCord, a new friend and top-notch Chicago homicide detective, has gone missing.
Partnered with Detective Henry Johnson of Chicago’s homicide division, Kate goes on the hunt for the killer, armed with clues from her revealing dreams—and her dogged determination. 
As they inch closer to locating Jesse and learning the identity of the suspect, they realize the killer may be much closer than they think.


Editorial Review:
“Psychic detective Kate Pierce works for a small-town Wisconsin sheriff’s department but gets called on by the big city when the Chicago Police Department finds itself at an impasse in a case involving two dead attorneys and a missing cop. Though Kate believes in the value of her work, she confronts not only a killer but also the good-old-boy network when her mostly male colleagues in Chicago ridicule her psychic abilities. This fresh, intriguing new heroine was a supporting player in some of Sutter’s previous novels and gets her well-deserved turn in the spotlight in this terrific new crime thriller series.” Angela M., Line Editor, Red Adept Editing

Two female students at a community college have died during finals week, and the college and the city of North Bend want answers. With no witnesses to the crime and no obvious signs of foul play, these disturbing occurrences may be nothing more than unusual coincidences. The sheriff’s office and medical examiner have their hands full as they try to find logical explanations for the deaths.
Detective Kate Pierce begins to show signs of physical distress whenever she’s near the bodies, and further research leads her to believe she could be experiencing psychic transference—she’s feeling the same symptoms these students did when they took their last breaths.
Kate is determined to be heard, and when the shocking results of the toxicology reports are revealed, she and her colleagues know they’re headed down the right path. There can be only one answer and only one person involved—they just have to prove it.
 
When another student goes missing and is soon found dead, the case breaks wide open, and the final showdown between Kate and the suspect puts her transference theory to the ultimate test.   
     
Editorial Review:
“In the second installment of Sutter’s smart new crime thriller series, Psychic Detective Kate Pierce finds herself on the team investigating how two young college students ended up dying under mysterious circumstances during finals week. While Kate has used her intuition to help solve cases before, this time her body starts experiencing odd physical symptoms when she’s in the presence of the victims’ bodies. After realizing that her symptoms are directly related to the manner in which the victims died, Kate tosses out a wild theory that proves to be correct—and puts her and her colleagues in the killer’s crosshairs. A terrific thriller with a thoroughly unexpected conclusion.” Angela M., Line Editor, Red Adept Editing

Editorial Review:
“In C. M.

Solving cases with the help of her psychic abilities makes Kate Pierce a huge asset to her team, yet when news surfaces that a celebrity psychic has gone missing and she’s found brutally murdered days later, Kate takes it upon herself to dig deeper on her own time. After nights of research, Kate realizes the killing isn’t an isolated incident, and a madman is prowling the Midwest in search of particular psychics to murder.
Joining forces with the FBI’s Serial Crimes Unit—led by Kate’s dearest friend, Jade Monroe, and her partner, J.T. Harper—Kate goes on a multistate hunt to track down the diabolical demon, only to end up back on her home turf.
After circling the Midwest, the killer hunkers down in Wisconsin, making the team wonder what his real motivation is and who he’s targeting. Has he finally found his true target, and can the FBI and Washburn County Sheriff’s Office stop him before somebody else dies? Only time, determination, and a lot of luck will tell.

Editorial Review:
“When a famous psychic goes missing following an event in Iowa and is soon found murdered, Psychic Detective Kate Pierce of the Washburn County Sheriff’s Office in Wisconsin finds herself more than a little intrigued, even though the crime occurred outside her office's jurisdiction. Kate has dreams that only increase her interest in the psychic's murder, and when she learns that a serial killer may be targeting psychics, her friends at the FBI develop an interest in the case, too, and accept Kate’s offer to help find the killer. With twists and turns galore, C.M. Sutter’s latest spine-tingling crime thriller will have readers in knots as they try to figure out this killer’s motive—and his next target.” Angela M., Line Editor, Red Adept Editing

Practicing Buddhist and retired forensic pathologist Bodhi King seeks peace. But death keeps finding him.

After solving a series of unexplained deaths and exposing a sordid political scandal, Bodhi retreated from the limelight. Permanently, he thought. But now he's called out of early retirement to help investigate a death cluster on a private island in the Florida Keys.

Healthy residents of a ritzy assisted living facility are dying in the middle of the night ... their faces frozen in terror.

Bodhi arrives on Golden Island to find a community gripped by fear. And beneath the surface, conflict simmers, threatening to boil over. The charismatic leader of the Golden Island Church, the dying Cuban-Americans, and the local Catholic priest all have secrets to protect.

It’s up to Bodhi to bring the truth to light … before another resident dies.
