Paranormal
(Fic)
Spirit of Earth
by Arline Chase

Jill Abercrombie, in the throes of her doppleganger-accompanied visions, tugs at our heartstrings as we join her almong the bouts of her scatterplot clairvoyance, a psychic curse which she is desperate to use to help her detective brother, Jack. We feel for Jill as her entire family is less than sympathetic to her plight, and we admire Jack for being the one family member who understands she was born with a "gift" she cannot help. A murder in Baltimore. A volcano in Martinique. What could possibly be the connection? "Sounds interesting!"
