Tough. Unflappable. Stubborn. Crazy? Everyone, even her husband, believes Lily Caldwell went off the deep end when her partner Danny died in a mysterious shooting that nearly killed her, too. Based on the life-changing vision she experienced while technically dead, the thirty-year-old police officer is convinced that Governor "Nob" Stevens is the killer. Kicked off the police force and separated from her husband because of her convictions, Lily is forced to investigate the governor on her own. The trail is cold until Lily's husband returns with a compelling piece of information that breathes new life into the case and their crumbling marriage.

Shocking family secrets, blind ambition, betrayal, love, and forgiveness propel these captivating characters toward a startling revelation that also brings healing.

While investigating the homicide of Emily Martin, police officer Emily Martin and her partner Danny Donovan are killed in the line of duty. While Danny stayed dead, Lily¿s death lasted seven and a half minutes before she returns to the living. While dead, she visualizes their killer, state Governor Robert (¿Nob¿) Stevens.----------------- No one including her superior Tony Paluzzi believes her assertion as they cannot imagine the most powerful person in their state resorting to murder. Counseling fails the help her as her obsession remains that Nob killed Danny and almost her. Finally at thirty she is fired as incompetent. Lily¿s only hope for redemption lies with her husband Gray, but he too does not accept her contention thus the mother of a small child feels all alone and is filing for divorce. Refusing to back down, Lily begins an inquiry into the motive and finding the evidence that proves the governor killed Danny.----------------- With a touch of the paranormal to enhance an intriguing psychological investigative tale, THE DARK BACKWARD is a fascinating well written novel that grips the audience from start to finish. The story line is fast-paced but clearly driven by the beleaguered heroine who is as alone as a person can be as she seeks the truth while everyone who knows her assumes she is crazy. Julia Buckley provides a riveting suspense thriller.------------- Harriet Klausner
