Mind Over Murder
The last time the police knocked on psychic Valentine Zalmanzig Cohen's door they ignored her advice and the wrong man ended up in prison for murder. Five years later the knock comes again. Another couple killed in the same house. A copycat killer? Or has the original killer struck again? The police are willing to consider that perhaps they'd been wrong, but is Val willing to risk her marriage, career, and maybe even her life to try again?
Leaving Lottawatah by Evelyn David is the eleventh book in the Brianna Sullivan Mysteries series. A novella-length story, Leaving Lottawatah continues the spooky, yet funny saga of reluctant psychic Brianna Sullivan who planned to travel the country in her motor home looking for adventure, but unexpectedly ended up in a small town in Oklahoma.
Things are messy in Paradise. The happily engaged couple of Brianna Sullivan and Cooper Jackson are anything but. Angry words set Brianna and Leon, her bulldog companion, off on a road trip, but it's hard to run away from home if everyone wants to come with you. Before she can leave town, Brianna is unexpectedly joined on her travels by Sassy Jackson, her maybe ex-future mother-in-law, plus Beverly Heyman and daughter Sophia, both still grieving over a death in the family. Destination: A Psychic convention in America's most haunted hotel. But they haven't reached their destination before Brianna is confronted by two ghosts demanding help in capturing the serial killer who murdered them decades earlier. Even more worrisome, another young woman has gone missing. It's up to Brianna and her road crew to stop the serial killer from striking again. Brianna has hard questions for the spirits surrounding her, and for herself. Does she want to marry Cooper? Is it time to hit the open road again and leave Lottawatah behind? Or will the ghosts of her past continue to haunt her wherever she goes?

Praise for MURDER DOUBLES BACK!
It's been four years since Evelyn David's last book in the Sullivan Investigations series, although in the books themselves, it's only been a few months. David brings back the familiar cast of retired cop turned private investigator Mac Sullivan, his office staff, JJ and Edgar Freed, his friends from O'Herlihy Funeral Home, including Mac's girlfriend, Rachel Brenner, and of course, Mac's true partner, his Irish Wolfhound, Whiskey. *Murder Doubles Back *is my favorite type of mystery, a cold case. In this story, it's a ten-year-old cold case with one of the most surprising turns I've seen in recent mysteries.
For the past ten years, Mac Sullivan has been receiving postcards every year with just one line, "Where's Amanda Norman?" Now that he's retired with his own PI agency, he's surprised the postcards followed him to his new address. Ten years earlier, Sullivan investigated a missing person's case. Amanda Norman, a fourteen-year-old, disappeared on a class trip to the Smithsonian. She was a foster child, in a new school, and no one, from foster parents to schoolmates, knew much about the girl. Now that Mac had his own business, he decided to try to find the answer to that question, "Where's Amanda Norman?"
One simple question about a cold case, and it would turn Sullivan's life upside down. It asks a question that had haunted him for ten years. Now, everyone in Mac's life would be drawn into the search, in unexpected ways. Twice, Sullivan himself is the victim in incidents as he searches for answers. Sullivan's investigation turns deadly as bodies pile up, people who were related to that original search for a missing girl.
David's story involves the search for answers, and some of those answers involve relationships. Mac asks Rachel, "What do you get out of this relationship? You cook, and I hobble around trying to recover from some injury." Jeff O'Herlihy, Mac's best friend, finds himself baffled by the recent behavior of his wife, Kathleen. And, JJ and Edgar, who work for Mac, bicker constantly. It takes a deft hand to introduce that many people, and bring all the people and their issues together in a complex story. Evelyn David manages it perfectly while including a touch of humor in the form of
Edgar, a man approaching eighty who is shrewd and forward-thinking.
When authors can manage to juggle large casts, complicated stories, a fascinating dog, and traces of humor, they shouldn't wait years between books. Evelyn David's entertaining *Murder Doubles Back* will make readers regret four lost years.

Review - Murder Doubles Back
By L. Rigod
May 4, 2013
Not only does 'Murder Doubles Back' but so do cold cases as Private Investigator, Mackenzie Sullivan and his Irish Wolfhound partner find out.
For some unknown reason Mac keeps receiving annual postcards regarding a missing person's case from a decade earlier. The case remains unsolved and Mac has always regretted it. Who is trying to keep the case alive and why? After all, a decade makes it likely the missing person is dead by now, and since it was a child...?
Mac soon learns that he isn't aware of the background of the ones he has grown a family of...JJ, his assistant, Edgar, the senior citizen, Rachel, his steady girlfriend (have they gone on a date yet???), Jeff, funeral parlor owner and best friend, even fellow police officers...are they whom they seem to be? No.
This book keeps you in suspense throughout the entire novel. Murders, kidnappings, stolen pirate treasure, identity theft, car chases, stake-outs and cookies...what more can you ask of this gripping novel?
A true murder mystery, this book has me eagerly awaiting the next installment. Luckily for all of us, you can purchase this Title and others in the series by Print, ebooks, etc. Do read the series in order as the characters develop greatly and their backgrounds are vital. It is a great stand alone, but, I did enjoy it more 'knowing' the main persons involved.
