Zoë Martinique has the ability to travel outside of her body at will— which she turned into a career, hiring herself out as a literal spook. One night, she witnesses a murder by a fellow traveler—who not only sees her but tries to pursue her. To save herself, Zoë must figure out exactly who—and what—the murderer is, before he finds her and puts an end to her traveling— permanently. From Publishers Weekly Part paranormal whodunit, part urban fantasy, Weldon's lively debut introduces Zoë Martinique, a professional snoop based in Atlanta, Ga., with the ability to project herself out of body and spy on illicit activities. Things get complicated after Zoë becomes an astral witness to murder, and the killer, who can not only see her but also touch her, leaves her branded with a red hand print and a shock of white hair that just keeps getting thicker. Zoë teams up with sexy cop Daniel Frasier, who thinks infamous televangelist Theodore Rollins is somehow behind the murder, but Zoë's also pretty sure that the dead man's boss, Koba Hirokumi, president of Visitar Inc., knows a lot more than he's telling. Before long, what began as an apparent case of industrial espionage turns into a battle against evil from another dimension. Weldon keeps Zoë and her readers off balance with brisk pacing and brain-wrenching plot twists, drawing the story to a satisfying close while leaving enough loose ends to set up Zoë's next adventure.
