Dark Side of Sunset Pointe – A Lance Underphal Mystery
Lance Underphal was devastated by his wife’s death. And now, the down and out crime-scene photographer can’t let her go. He wakes up plagued by premonitions. The double shooting of an Arizona real estate developer and his mistress/bookkeeper immerse Underphal in a world of incomprehensible phenomena.
Frank Salmon, the hard-boiled homicide detective on the case, comes to see Underphal as an asset. Salmon uses Underphal’s prescient visions to piece together hard evidence. But the trail goes cold until a double homicide at a fast food drive-thru leads back to the shady developer’s death.
Salmon pursues the clues through twists and turns, leading him from a popular strip club to a failing community bank, adding a blackmailing stripper’s murder to the body count. With Underphal’s reluctant insights, Salmon seeks a key piece of evidence and the common link between the killings – a custom offroad truck.
Underphal struggles mightily with his psychic curse, teetering on the brink of insanity. His only hope for redemption is the voice in his head, the voice of his dead wife. Stumbling through dark vortexes of murderous intrigue, he comes to realize his visions will either kill him or lead to the capture of a killer – maybe more than one.
