As The Crow Flies
When an elderly woman hands P.J. Benson a briefcase and begs for her help, it’s just the beginning of a series of events that has P.J. wondering if she’s jinxed. Soon she’s sporting a black eye, her boyfriend, homicide detective Wade Kingsley, is avoiding her, her neighbor Nora Wright is still threatening her, and the sheriff’s department thinks she’s involved when a house blows up. Even her Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy, Baraka, is acting up. If P.J. doesn’t figure out what’s going on, and soon, she may be the next victim.
A relaxing afternoon walk in the woods with her Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy turns into a harrowing experience for accountant P.J. Benson. One that ends with a man dying in her dining room. P.J. has a stack of taxes to finish before April 15th; she doesn’t have time to deal with people being murdered, her house being broken into, a biogenetic experiment that doesn’t seem to exist, or an attractive homicide detective. Forced to question her sanity, she fears she’s developing the same debilitating schizophrenia that claimed her mother’s mind…that or someone really is trying to kill her.
