HAVE I LIVED BEFORE? WAS I A DERANGED KILLER IN A PAST LIFE? COULD I COMMIT A VIOLENT, BLOODY MURDER AND NOT REMEMBER IT?
Ceeoni Jones asks herself these bizarre questions soon after arriving in Starcross, Georgia to manage the restored Civil War Era Starcross Theatre. Within hours, she encounters the first mutilated corpse, killed by a relentless, illusive perpetrator who leaves no clues. One attack follows another as Ceeoni secretly grapples with an eerie episode of déjà vu that reveals her own vivid memories of 19th Century Starcross. When charismatic concert pianist Adam Delayno disappears without a trace, Past Life Therapist, Nasrene Asher probes the past lives of the Souls gathered at Starcross. Each testimony uncovers more clues to a 100-year-old tangled web of unresolved intrigue, deception and murder. A psychopathic killer, 'arrayed in some new flesh disguise' is once again stalking the Starcross Complex, seeking revenge. Tension escalates in a frantic race to unmask the killer's present identity, before he--or she--strikes again. Who will be the next victim? And most of all, who among them is a brutal murderer?

Albert Williams: I highly recommend Karma Rising as a tantalizing page turning mystery thriller.
