Ten months have passed since Rowan Gant, a witch, brought down serial killer Eldon Andrew Porter. Everyone else, including the police, thinks Porter is dead, but Rowan knows he's alive and when the time is right he is going to go after him again. In the meantime Rowan and his wife Felicity are doing their best to live a normal life.

Up until two months ago, Rowan was largely succeeding but now he suffers fugue states where he loses hours of time and goes to sleep in one place and wakes up in another. Things get really bizarre when he arrives at a crime scene with no memory of driving there. Homicide detective Ben Storm accepts the fact that Rowan is able to channel the dead and he uses him to see if there's a connection to another death. Unfortunately a very angry cheerleader who wants vengeance on her killer is preventing Rowan from seeing things clearly.

The hero's powers are increasing with each crime he becomes involved in and it's fascinating to watch him learn to cope with them in his everyday life. PERFECT TRUST is as good as the sub-genre gets because of its many unexpected twists and turns and that keep readers on their toes. M.R. Sellars is a creative storyteller who knows how to keep his audience interested from start to finish.
