Abstract:

Nan Robinson, an investigator for the State Bar of California, does not usually involve herself in cases of missing persons. That is, not until Debra LaRoche, the best secretary any boss ever dreamed of, turns up dead. Debra, who was smitten with the rougher side of L.A. night-life and its nocturnal players, had run through a succession of hard-rock boyfriends. But, of late, her great interest had been the PLI - Past Lives Institute. There, sequestered in the lush hills.

Of Malibu, Debra discovered something - possibly her own tragic fate. The trail of evidence leads Nan through the seedier clubs of L.A. and up the winding road to the PLI. What can these nuts tell me? she thinks. Well, surprisingly, Nan finds herself attracted to Jonathan Henley, who with his sister, April, Founded the PLI. And then, there's Brother Bartholomew, a sexy mystic forever lost in the drugged fog of the sixties. Or is he? Or how about the therapist who.

Regressed Debra? Then, of course, outside the PLI, there's Tony, Debra's estranged husband, who had abused Debra and was known for his quick temper. But suddenly the police close the case. They convince themselves that Tony, who turns up dead in an apparent suicide, is the murderer. Nan is not satisfied, especially once she unearths Debra's PLI journal. This is the key. Now, Nan must locate the real killer before another victim - Nan herself - is added to the tally. Bad.

Karma, indeed.
