Melisa C. Michaels. Through the Eyes of the Dead (1988) 180 pp.
Publisher’s description: “Chalk it up to the heat...or to hormones, but when San Francisco P.I. Aileen Douglass catches the sexy young Gypsy man trying to hot-wire her car, she doesn’t call the cops. Instead she gives him a lift into Oakland...and lands herself in a twisted case of murder. Nick inhabits the strange world of the Romany, a dangerous one, as Aileen learns, when she stumbles across a dead fortune-teller, then dodges a hail of bullets. Next, Aileen’s only paying client—a jilted fiancé searching for his missing bride—is murdered, her office ransacked and her partner drugged, and she discovers these cases are a missing $100,000. Tough and resourceful, but a sucker for a gorgeous young man in distress, Aileen’s got more than a professional interest in the case. Luckily love—unlike murder—isn’t fatal.... She hopes.”
Setting: San Francisco
