A Maddy and Alex Phillips Mystery of Hypnotic DetectionBook - 1993
"Once again, Maddy Phillips, the world's foremost forensic hypnotherapist, must bring her unique mental powers to bear on another grisly murder. Sightless since youth, paraplegic since a recent accident, Maddy relies on hypnosis to slip her brother, Alex, into a trance, where he retells in detail what he witnessed, and thus enables Maddy to hunt out the clues and visualize the horrible truth." "Blood Trance is a rousing reintroduction to this critically acclaimed team as they struggle to solve the mystery of the murder of Helen Long, the enigmatic evil step-mother. Although daughter Loretta appears quickly at the scene of the crime, a bloody knife in her hand and a ready confession on her lips, Maddy isn't convinced. Pushing deeper, Alex relates his violent encounter with Loretta's sister, who has dark secrets to protect. And then there is the alcoholic brother, who disappears once Helen is found dead. The closer Maddy and Alex get to the truth, the more sinister the twists and turns become. Finally with both their lives in increasing danger, Maddy must gather all the suspects to her remote Lake Michigan island home, where the events draw to an inexorable, horrifying conclusion."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
