Widow, Mira Morales owns a New Age bookstore, reads Tarot cards for customers, and is a gifted psychic. In fact, she had nightmares about her husband’s violent death before it occurred. Mira has done her best to move on with her life until a horrible psychic image shows one man shooting another. Mira has no idea why the image came through, as psychic revelations usually occur when there is some sort of personal connection. Feeling compelled to help the police, she tells them what she saw and soo ...more

Wow, this one was so good I forgot to list it as currently reading. But I'm finished now because I didn't want to stop reading. Parapsychology at it's best and used for the worst. Add in the government and oh boy, corruption galore. The further into this fiction I went the more it made me think. The crux of the writing is that it's all believable. Psychics, mind control, remote viewing, FBI, murder and yes a love connection all make this an in-depth look at the capabilities some humans possess a ...more

Writing about paranormalities can all too easily slide into improbable contrivance. MacGregor assiduously avoids such a facile plot device which, as a skeptic who likes the endless possibilities of the human mind and spirit, I very much appreciate.

Without that twist, The Hanged Man would have been just a standard mystery in an attractive setting with nicely drawn characters and a decent plot. And, really, what more does a reader ask of this genre?

I thought this book by Trish MacGregor was great. It was published a long time ago and it's probably difficult to find but it's definitely worth it. It deals with a secret government mind control experiment and you couldn't wait to find out how the book was going to end. Go get it.

An older series I just discovered and loving! Mystery with a paranormal twist!

What I liked: Yes, there are other paranormal mysteries out there but none I have found that grabbed my attention like The Hanged Man. The character in this first in the series are complex and multidimensional. I especially liked the care Ms MacGregor took to flesh out each of the characters.

The story is told from several points of view but it's not distracting. The author made the transitions with little con

I am fan of mysteries and thrillers and do like when there is a psychic character in them, MacGregor definitely delivers a tale with psychic abilities. "Project Delphi" spawned seven psychics taken from prisons, trained by the FBI, and used as assassins and spies. Years later the project was dissolved when three of its members escaped, the apparently random murder of a criminal psychologist and kidnapping of his wife is anything but random after all.
A psychic, Mira Morales, who tuned in on the m

This was quite good. The plot was engaging. The characters were likable, and the villains were truly hateful! I particularly enjoyed the tarot and psychic references and research.

A psychic sees a murder in her mind and contacts the police to report it, telling them everything she can about the scene. She tries to forget about the vision but she can't. It keeps bothering her. Soon, she is contacted by Wayne Sheppard, a local policeman working on a murder which turns out to be the same murder she

I am not usually into psychics, et al, but this book was an OK read. It had enough real action to not be overwhelmed with the 'vision' conjured up by the main characters.
Vfields Don't touch my happy!
This is the first book I read from this writer since he/she stopped writing and went on a religious journey. Welcome back! Him a cop, her a physic. The FBI, a kidnapping, mind control, love affairs, good stuff!
