In this entertaining novel of romantic suspense from Seewald (Tea Leaves and Tarot Cards), international PI Michelle Hallam looks into the mysterious death of CIA agent James Parker, the estranged husband of her New York City cousin, Nora Parker. After referring the depressed Nora to Dr. Daniel Reiner, Michelle finds that the handsome, charming psychiatrist is too love-struck to leave her alone. Daniel decides to help Michelle with her case, but quickly realizes that both of them are in danger, whether from the limo that tries to sideswipe them, the silencer gun shots that interrupt their walk through Greenwich Village, or the mysterious caller who phones to warn them to "stop asking questions." After the NSA comes calling, the two realize that James may not have been the loyal CIA functionary he appeared to be. This thriller keeps moving from its very first pages, while the palpable sexual tension between new cohorts Daniel and Michelle fortifies the story's intrigue with romance. (Mar.)
