Midnight Owl by Viv Drewa
When the dismembered body of a young woman is found Detectives Joe Leverette and Philip Marsden are assigned the case. After investigating the Port Huron, Michigan area where the six body parts were found there’s a twist in the case: The murderer goes after each individual who found the parts, one by one.
Leverette becomes interested in one of the women, Carole Sage, a sensitive, but because of the case he’s not able to take it any further. Everyone on the police force sees his infatuation, but Carole does not.
Each of the six witnesses has a dream about the murderer removing the particular body part they found the night. They are startled awake and hear an owl hoot three times. None of them want to reveal their dream to the detectives.
Carole sees the actual murder and each murder as it happens to the witnesses. The police chief, Billingsley, understands her ‘gift’ and sets up a sting to catch him. It fails and they have to regroup to think of something else. Two witnesses are dead and they don’t want a third to die.
This books is for 18+ due to the violence.
Author Viv Drewa writes:
"Joe Leverette was a character I created for a screenplay I was writing 30 odd years ago. I liked him so much I decided to use him in this series.
I wanted it to be more of a paranormal thriller but decided to use Carole Sage's gift only, she's a sensitive.
I loved writing this book and can't wait to write more in the series.
It started out as a trilogy but as I wrote it I came up with so many other ideas for stories that it'll be a series.
The only thing is you'll have to read the first three books in order, the ones following won't have to be.
Thank you Carol for having me on your wonderful blog."
