Secret of Coffin Island

Dr. Marie Bartek finally ties the knot with her fiancé, Police Chief Cory Miller, but their wedding is suddenly disrupted after the discovery of a decapitated body. Whereas criminal investigation is Cory's niche, Marie—who has alongside her team of psychic researchers played a pivotal role in solving mysteries in the past—has visions that provide some much needed insight into the mystery at hand.

Myra, her mentor and friend, may have suffered a fatal heart attack, but she continues to guide and lead Marie in her endeavor to help the police solve the murder investigation.

Secret of Coffin Island intriguingly offers a blend of the paranormal and the police procedural work, as husband and wife team work hand in hand to solve the case.

The book can equally be read on its own without giving away too much.
