Coming in May, 2012…
When Riga Hayworth finds her new client, Helen Baro, dead, she smells a set up of metaphysical proportions. Now, to find a killer, Riga must travel from San Francisco to the underworld – and make it back alive…
When Riga’s parents named her for silver screen goddess, Rita Hayworth, they had no idea she’d grow up to be a dead ringer for the actress. It’s just one of the many oddities that Riga’s had to learn to live with – along with blacking out streetlights and dealing with wisecracking ghosts.
Riga’s client, Helen, believes her husband is trying to kill her. One problem: Helen’s husband is dead. Riga isn’t sure what to think. Is Helen mad? Is someone else trying to harm the woman? Or is this really a case of attempted murder from beyond the grave? But then Helen is found dead, leaving a strange haiku and Tarot for a clue, and Riga is hurtled into an investigation that threatens the detective and those she loves.
A paranormal mystery based in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Metaphysical Detective explores the power of the archetypes through the double lens of Tarot and Greek mythology.
I thought I’d have some fun with this and turn the trailer for The Alchemical Detective into a puzzle with an actual prize/freebie at the end. Can you follow the clues?
Because I work by deadlines… The sequel will arrive in 2012.
