Sparks fly between a police chief and a reporter who are thrown together when a brutal killer comes out of hiding after fifteen years. Pawleys Island, South Carolina. Sunny, idyllic, and picture perfect, until a tabloid news program airs a splashy segment about the community's only unsolved murder-the grisly stabbing of teenager Tara Mitchell and the subsequent disappearance of her two best friends, both thought to be long dead. In the years since the murders, several families have moved into the mansion where the crime occurred, each claiming that the dead girls still haunt the house. Beautiful redheaded reporter Nicole Sullivan, sensing the story that could be her big break, arranges for her mother, a renowned psychic, to contact the three victims via a live sance on the show Twenty-four Hours Investigates. But something goes terribly wrong during the segment, and a young woman is murdered in the exact same manner as Tara Mitchell was fifteen years earlier. Pressured by her producers to get the inside story, Nicole is ordered to continue to investigate. As an attraction grows between Nicole and police chief Joe Franconi, another identical murder occurs, along with a menacing note warning that the original killer is back to claim three more lives. The body count rises, and so does the danger to Nicole, who is attacked, barely escaping with her life. She and Joe are forced to join forces as it becomes clear that the killer has set his sights on Nicole as his next victim. Tightly plotted and deeply suspenseful, Superstition is Karen Robards's most captivating work yet.

A killer has come out of hiding in this haunting novel by New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards.
Pawleys Island hides a dark history of a shocking cold case: the murder of a local girl and the strange disappearance of her two friends. This unsolved crime could be journalist Nicole Sullivan's big break, so she works intimately with Police Chief Joe Franconi to get the story straight.
But their investigation takes a shocking turn when another young woman is murdered. As the body count rises, so does Nicole's fear that the killer has returned to bury a terrifying secret—and to resurrect the ghost of a crime long thought dead.
