When six college girls with serious emotional baggage are found dead in the Mississippi River near the Twin Cities over a six-month period, their drownings are ruled suicides. The public, however, begins to fear a serial killer and demands further investigation.
Enter FBI Agent Bernadette Saint Clare. Not your ordinary investigator, Agent Saint Clare has an advantage: the gift of second sight. Unable to always understand or even control her visions, her history in the bureau has earned her a certain amount of mockery from her peers. Only her boss, Assistant Special Agent in Charge Tony Garcia, has faith in her abilities. When another student drowns, this time in her own bathtub, Garcia knows Bernadette is the right woman for the case.
Taking that famous movie catchphrase “I see dead people” to a different level, Agent Saint Clare, with the help of her deceased partner, moves in on psychiatrist Matthew VonHader and his laissez-faire younger brother, Luke. The drownings began right after the recent death of the brothers’ younger sister, Ruth, who had been hospitalized since her teens after a “household accident” involving water. What happened in the VonHader home all those years ago - and did it spawn a serial killer?
Blind Rage is author Terri Persons second novel featuring Bernadette Saint Clare. With a few red herrings and a fair amount of sexual tension, this new tale has all the makings of a psychological thriller even Sigmund Freud could sink his teeth into.
