|Plot Summary of Now You See Her|
Mysterious, Feb 2005, 23.95
In Boston, Tania Arnot believes that the townhouse she is renting is haunted so she informs her realtor Meg Givens that unless she gets rid of the unwanted ghost, she will see her in court. Not wanting a court date or the negative publicity, Meg turns to her friend psychic Regina Cutter. Regina finds nothing supernatural about the townhouse.
While the Arnot case seems cold, Boston Homicide Detective Francis Devaney asks Regina for her professional judgment about the Henry Faiser conviction. Henry, a black drug dealer, was convicted of killing Peter Wald, son of a State Senator, thirteen years ago. Henry insists he is innocent and that the real killer still walks the mean streets. However, her ESP fails to determine anything so Francis goes with the original finding while Regina decides to investigate the old fashion way.
