Publishers Lunch reports that PD Martin has sold his novel BODY COUNT to Mira Books and that the rights are being shopped worldwide. It’s the first in a series about an FBI profiler with psychic abilities who is chasing a serial killer. I suppose this could strike you as a clever idea for a book…if you haven’t seen MISSING, MEDIUM, THE DEAD ZONE or any of the other psychics-who-solve-crimes shows on television. Haven’t there also been, like, 178 movies with the same premise? Maybe his next book can be about a private eye with a sociopathic sidekick and an irascible friend-on-the-force.

There aren’t too many guys named Phillipa, I reckon…
Not to mention that Kay Hooper has already written a bestselling series of books based on pretty much the same premise.
Come to think of it, doesn’t Jayne Ann Krentz have a series of books with a similar concept?
