Flash Point
By Metsy Hingle

   When Kelly Santos returns home to New York after a month long photo shoot, she’s stunned to learn Sister Grace has died. Having been raised in St. Anne’s orphanage, Sister Grace was the one person she trusted and who cared about her welfare. She even gifted her with her first camera. Behind the lens, Kelly is able to hide from the pain of being different. In truth, her psychic abilities have always made her feel like an outsider. When she sees the news of Sister Grace’s death in the paper, an image of the killer appears in her mind's eye. She returns to New Orleans to report what she has seen to the authorities, but they scoff at her revelation, refusing to take her seriously. When someone else turns up dead, Kelly herself becomes the prime suspect.

   Homicide Detective Jack Callaghan believes in Kelly’s innocence. Joining forces, their journey leads them to some dangerous sections of New Orleans, where they attempt to flush out the real killer. The city, with so much mystery and danger, threatens to consume those who dare to interfere. As the past, present, and future hang in the balance, both of their lives are in jeopardy. Will they survive the evil trying to destroy them?

   Metsy Hingle is a master at writing romantic suspense and always leaves me sitting on the edge of my seat, trying to figure out what will happen next. New Orleans is the perfect setting for this highly compelling story, giving it a gritty edge that sets your teeth to craving more. Bravo!
