Valerie Simpson, a suburban housewife, has begun seeing visions of murders, kidnappings, suicides and even family members threatened with impending accidents. But the most incriminating vision may concern someone close to Val herself. She hesitates to go to the police because her husband works for a conservative firm ("Wall Street and psychic phenomena don't mix"), and because she has spent some time in a mental institution. Val's brother, a caring neighbor, and a psychic researcher, all offer support and understanding. But why is her husband so violently against exploring what might be a telepathic gift? And what is all the notoriety doing to their teen-aged son? A seasoned police lieutenant is determined to cut through the psychic mysteries to get to the truth. This mystery-thriller has more than one frightening twist at the end.
