How do you catch a killer no one believes in?
They call Joe Bailey the Spirit Basher. Formerly a professional magician, hes become an ace police detective in Atlanta, debunking phony psychics and spiritualists who prey on the gullible. And hes just caught his first sensational murder case.
The victim is the head of a university parapsychology program, impaled in his own home by a massive sculpture no one could possibly have lifted. The prime suspect: an eight-year-old boy with violent telekinetic activity that erupts in his dreams.
Could the boy possibly be the murderer? Joe doesnt think so. And hes determined to prove it.
But first he must separate reality from illusion. To catch this killer, he cant even trust his own senses. Because the truth is far more terrifying than anyone imagines. And if he doesnt get someone to believe it soon, Joe and his child will be next....
