Priest’s second “Booking Agents” novel (after Grave Reservations) has psychic travel agent Leda Foley ready to solve another mystery (or two). When she is asked to help a man find his missing sister, Leda jumps at the chance to use her (sometimes inconsistent) psychic abilities on a paying gig. The man’s sister was last seen leaving in a vintage orange car with a large amount of cash from her landscaping clients. He believes the police are not doing enough because of the well-known fact of her philandering husband and their shaky marriage. In the meantime, Grady Merritt, Seattle PD, has inadvertently become involved in a case that involves body parts—most notably, a leg, which was retrieved from the mouth of his dog, Cairo. After DNA tests reveal that “Mr. Leg” belongs to Leda’s missing woman’s husband, the cases become entangled, and the unlikely duo set out to decipher the clues.
VERDICT This lighthearted mystery with its travel agent/psychic and her occasional, unofficial partner is a good choice for cozy mystery lovers, animal lovers, and fans of the author. Recommended.
