Book Description:

Psychic detectives Levi Wolfe and Trudy Tucker comb the streets of New Orleans in search of a serial killer who has claimed 19 lives and counting.

The suspect was in an accident almost two years ago that left him paralyzed in a wheel chair, but the murders continue. Is he faking it or has he enlisted a protégé to continue his reign of terror?

As Levi and Trudy draw closer to the truth, Trudy discovers new and unsettling psychic abilities in herself.


Excerpt:

“So, tell me
about your experience,” Trudy said, sitting next to Levi.
“It was strange.
Very strange. I was contacted – during a business meeting, mind you – by the
dead son of the new contractor I was speaking with in my office. This kid – a
salvage yard murder victim – popped into my head and started yelling at me. I
tried to shut him out, but I couldn’t. I had to actually stop the damned
meeting and tell the man that his deceased son was demanding an audience. Gonzo
thought I’d lost my noodle.”
“Good Lord!” She
covered her parted lips with her hand. “I’d say that was a heck of a
coincidence, but . . .it seems to be so much more than that.”
“Yeah, right.”
He sat back and drummed his fingers on the table for a few seconds. “Anyway,
the kid – Clayton Nelson – was hitchhiking in New Orleans when a guy in a
pickup stopped for him. He couldn’t see much of the man’s face because he wore
a ball cap and sunglasses. He had a mustache that looked fake to me. He used
the ploy of something being wrong with his truck to get the kid to look under
the hood and then he knocked him out with a blow to the head. Clay came to in a
basement, his wrists and ankles bound with plastic ties and chains.” He
shuttered his gaze from her. “That’s where he was murdered.” A few seconds
ticked by before his lashes lifted to reveal his dark blue eyes that never
missed much. “You’ve been in contact with the murderer already, haven’t you?”
Her heart
jolted. He was uncanny. “I was in contact with someone who’s warped. I don’t
know if it was the salvage yard killer.”
“Was he
murdering someone?”
“Something. A
cat.”
Levi’s upper lip
lifted in disgust. “Jesus.”
“Yeah. He was
practicing, I think.” She shuddered and blocked out the memory.
“The kid in my
head showed me a compass and pointed to the N on it.”
She gasped at
the reference. “Your true north?”
“Bingo. His way
of telling me that you were already part of this.”
She reached for
her glass of juice. They must be destined to examine this case. How else could
she explain what happened to Levi and what she’d already experienced?

Interview with Deborah Camp
Where do you get inspiration for your stories?
Stories just pop into my head. I don’t know where they come from – they’ve always been there waiting to be put on paper.
How did you do research for your book?
I do some preliminary research before I begin each one, mainly the place where it’s set and what locations I plan to use. Then I research as I go because I never know where I’ll be hung up or how I’ll paint myself into a corner. For example, before I began writing “Through Her Eyes”, I knew where Levi and Trudy would stay while they were there and that they’d go to the French Market and Café du Monde. I didn’t know where certain houses and businesses would be located until I got to those parts of the book. I stopped, researched, figured it out, and continued. I use the Internet a lot and I usually have friends in the places where I’ve set books and I call them and get answers.
Do you have another profession besides writing?
No. I’ve been a writer since I graduated from college (actually, even before that). Writing is the only job I’ve had. I’m an active volunteer for a local dog and cat rescue group and that takes up some of my time, too.
If you could go back in time, where would you go?
I write historical romances, too, but I can’t say that I’d want to go back in time. I like the amenities we have now. I’d miss flush toilets, toilet paper, microwaves, cars, air conditioning and heating, electricity, television, etc. When the electricity goes out, I’m a nervous wreck until it flickers back on! I write about the mid- to late-1800s in the west and I’m always so very glad that I don’t have to work in the fields or do laundry by hand or haul in firewood or trot out in the middle of a snowy night to the outhouse as my characters are forced to do in my novels. Yep. I’ll stay put if it’s all the same to you.
What is your next project?

I’m writing a western set in the late 1800s in Arkansas right now about a couple who marry out of necessity and gradually learn to respect and love each other, despite their differences and foibles. After that, I’ll write #5 in the Mind’s Eye series. There will be six books in the series. In the final book, I plan to spin off another character for a different psychic/suspense series.
