When psychiatrist Janet Leigh picks up a pencil and paper to create a drawing, she finds insight into people's lives, both in the past and future. In Vicki Long's new book, Deadly Perception (now available through Authorhouse), Janet's gift helps her make some new friends and leads her into a strange mystery that she must help solve in order to save the lives of her homeless friends.
Janet, new to New York, decides one warm spring day to eat lunch in Riverside Park, and she begins going there almost every day to draw. As she draws the likeness of people in the park, she starts to see into their lives and learn about them. This gift draws her into the complex lives of many of the homeless people that frequent the park. Through her ability to see into their lives, she is able to help a few. Although she meets resistance from some, she is fueled by the desire to help others.
When some of her new homeless friends are found stabbed to death, Janet teams up with a handsome detective, Sam Warren, and the two work together to find the killer before anyone else is harmed.
Long's unique storyline captivates readers and pulls them into a riveting mystery novel that contains the best and worst of humanity.
