Berkley Prime Crime,
New from the author of the highly acclaimed Murder Never Forgets. With her genre-bending mix of literary and crime fiction, Diana O'Hehir again plots a mystery as intricate as the inner workings of the mind. When an indigo child speaks, people listen. Allegedly radiating an unusual purplish glow, the extraordinary beings are mysterious and otherworldly. And when one of them, fifteen-yearold Tamina Kerry, falls off a ledge to her death, part-time Deputy Sheriff Carla Day investigates. Was her death an accident, suicide-or murder? Carla has experience with those who sometimes fall out of touch with reality, since her father, Professor Day, has early Alzheimer's. Like much of the town of Stanton Mills, California, he had befriended Tamina-but confused her with Ta-Ent, an ancient Egyptian mythical journeywoman among the dead. With her final breath, Tamina spoke of her baby, another indigo child-who had disappeared. Now Carla must rely on the word of a hysterical grandmother and a drug-addled young man claiming to be the baby's father-and search the recesses of her father's fading mind for whatever clues he can provide.
