Barz’s brisk sequel to 2019’s Forgotten Bones takes Officer Susan Marlan of the Perrick, Calif., PD and schizophrenic college professor Eric Evans, who has developed a gift for seeing the dead, to Clancy, Wash., where musician Jake Bergman, a former student of Eric’s, will be performing with his band. Susan and Eric are looking forward to a restful holiday, but soon after their arrival, Eric’s visions of the dead intensify, and Jake’s band mates start to disappear in the forested areas of the Olympic Peninsula. The two paranormal investigators and Jake get no help from the residents of Clancy, who refuse to cooperate in what turns into a murder case. The tension builds as Susan and Eric each cope with internal demons and they realize they’re on the trail of a killer more dangerous than any they have ever faced before. The twisty action builds to an electrifying conclusion. Fans of Wendy Corsi Staub will be pleased. Agent: Paul Lucas, Janklow & Nesbit Assoc. (Aug.)
