My latest novel, A Faire Day for Murder, is available from JMS Books! It's the second in my Psionic Corps mystery series.
The brutal murder of an old man in his isolated farmhouse and very few clues leaves local law enforcement with no alternative but to ask the Psionic Corps for help. Ian Houston with his paranormal abilities is called in but his presence isn’t welcomed by all. The sheriff is convinced the owners of the nearby renaissance faire are behind the murder, especially since the victim was about to evict the faire from his land just as their season was getting underway.
Ian is not convinced the case is so straightforward, especially since there are other people with just as motive for doing away with the old man; the neighbor whom he has had a long-going property dispute, the son who will inherit his lands although the farm isn’t very profitable; one of the many participants and patrons of the faire whom the old man harassed over the years. To keep innocent people from being charged with murder, Ian must join the renaissance faire as a cast member to see if there is a murderer lurking among the ren folke.
Compounding his investigation is the beautiful actress Diana Morgan who instantly steals his heart. But as a cast member, she is also under suspicion and Ian discovers she may have a dark past, too.
A second murder confounds the investigation and the mystery becomes even more confused. Meanwhile the sheriff is moving closer to charging the renaissance faire owners with murder.
Can Ian use his powers to find the real culprit and prove his new-found friends innocent?
