From NYT bestselling author Susan Wittig Albert comes the first novella in the mesmerizing Crystal Cave series. Ruby has a rare gift for seeing things that others can't . . . Ruby Wilcox (owner of the Crystal Cave, Pecan Springs' only New Age shop) has always tried to downplay her psychic gift-until she experiences a horrifying nightmare that just won't stop. Again and again, she dreams that a woman is abducted on the hike-and-bike trail and knows that the victim is in deadly danger. Prodded by her friend and partner, China Bayles, Ruby goes to the police-only to find that her dream has already become far too real. Police chief Sheila Dawson puts Detective Ethan Connors in charge of this no-body case. But Connors is a skeptic who is convinced that all psychics are frauds. And Ruby herself still has plenty of doubts. What will she have to do to prove to Detective Connors-and to herself-that her gift can be trusted? Ruby Wilcox has always known that she has a rare gift for seeing things that others can't. But how can she learn to use it when she's haunted by the memory of loss, and by all the possible consequences?
