When Phoenix police detective Alex Mills is called to a lavish mansion to investigate the homicide of a high-flying socialite, he knows the case is going to get complicated. High society maven Viveca Canning is dead, and a priceless painting by the legendary artist Salvador Dalí is missing. With no known enemies, the beloved heiress was an unlikely candidate for murder … or was she?
With the help of his partner, the reluctant psychic Gus Parker, Mills starts digging through evidence and interviewing suspects, including Viveca’s playboy son and estranged daughter — who may not be telling everything they know. Meanwhile Gus is troubled by visions of his own, about exotic seas, a perilous journey, and a doomed flight.
Smart, sexy, and fast, Valley of Shadows takes the reader on a whirlwind ride through the sun-bleached suburbs and starry deserts of the Southwest, where nothing is ever quite as it seems.
