In author Rochelle Staab’s bestselling A Mind for Murder mystery series, classic Hollywood noir gets a modern, mystical twist. An L.A. psychologist who eschews all things supernatural matches wits with a handsome professor of the occult as they team up to solve Tinsel Town’s spookiest murders...

Divorced psychologist Liz Cooper doesn’t believe in fate, but it sure seems like an otherworldly force is bent on her working with occult professor, Nick Garfield. Whether Liz is tracking a tarot card killer, investigating a neighborhood witch, or clearing her own name in an unusual murder, the strange cases keep coming. And while Liz takes a practical approach to sleuthing, Nick explores the more alternative theories. But be it with practical evidence or preternatural clues, Liz and Nick won’t quit until the cases are solved.

Now, readers can enjoy all the suspenseful, fast-paced whodunits in the Anthony and Agatha nominated, Watson Award winning Mind for Murder series, collected for the first time in this omnibus, which includes Who Do, Voodoo?, Bruja Brouhaha, and Hex on the Ex. Packed with snappy banter, sizzling chemistry, and a supporting cast of characters as unique as L.A. itself, the Mind for Murder mysteries are a smart and sophisticated series that proves it’s far more fun when great minds don’t think alike...

Suzanne Tyler barely knew her father. But when she’s given a series of secret diaries and eight mysterious photographs of women from his possessions, she knows she won’t be able to rest until she knows the truth about him. 

 

To Suzanne’s shock, one of the photos is of her friend Sophie, who died ten years ago in an unexplained and devastating fire.

But Don only met Sophie once, on an unsettling visit he paid Suzanne just days before Sophie’s death... So why did he have a picture of her?

 

Unable to let Sophie’s memory alone, Suzanne begins to dig into her father’s life. What horrors is she about to unearth in his diaries? And who is it that’s out there, watching her every move?

The woman’s face was pale and waxy. Her milky, partially open eyes stared into the distance. There were drag marks in the grass; she’d been placed here and posed. Who did this to you and why have they left you like this? 

 

When a woman’s body is found on a lonely patch of scrubland, Detective Lucy Harwin is called to the scene. The victim’s clothes have been wrenched to expose her, and her feet are bare. 

 

Lucy and her team have only just started investigating who could have wanted local mother Melanie Benson dead, when a young woman is discovered strangled in a dark alley. As more bodies appear in the run-down seaside town, the small community is gripped by fear, and the pressure to solve the case becomes unbearable. But with each victim dying in a different way, Lucy struggles to find a link between the murders. Are these random killings, or part of the same plan? 

 

Just as she thinks she’s getting close, Lucy starts to suspect the killer is watching her. Can she find the murderer before they strike again, or will she be next?

 

An absolutely gripping serial-killer thriller that will have your heart pounding as you race through the pages. If you love Kathy Reichs, Karin Slaughter or Robert Dugoni, Dying Breath will have you hooked.
