The government is watching you. There's no point in glancing around for the cameras though, you won't see them. They don't need them. They're using psi techniques like remote viewing.
Don't believe it? Neither did Elizabeth Cunningham, until she discovered records of her
father's secret work. Now she fears that her parents' recent fatal automobile accident may have been caused by sabotage. Her father willed her an old urban brownstone building, along with a special codicil telling her she must move in and, "discover the truth". What truth?
Liz realizes nothing she was certain of is true. Her family was not the strong, loyal unit she thought she knew. Her best friends have been hiding things from her. Dirty politics, the CIA, and giant corporate interests could put her life in danger. Her beliefs will be assaulted even more when she has an encounter with a ghost, a mysterious Tarot reading, and learns about her father's connections to the paranormal.
Cut out the last paragraph or re work it and you've got a fairly decent hook.
