The Tempest Murders

By P.M. Terrell

The Tempest Murders by P.M. Terrell, reincarnation, Celtic Culture, romantic suspense, romanceI have always been fascinated by the concept of reincarnation. When I was a young child, long before the invention of the Internet and the plethora of information we now have at our fingertips, I dreamed of places, people and events I could never have known about. And there have always been people I’d only just met, whom I felt I’d known my entire life, and others that, for no apparent reason, I always distrusted.

In the 1980’s during a particularly challenging marriage (which thankfully ended) I was undergoing psychological counseling when the therapist suggested regression hypnosis. She confessed she’d intended to take me back to my childhood—but instead, I relived my own death—on a battlefield during the Civil War.

Since that time, I have delved into the possibilities of reincarnation. I found it interesting that some folks I’ve met were adamant believers in one life and then you went to heaven or hell; yet, when a loved one passed on, they spoke of that person’s spirit remaining with them here on earth. If the spirit lives on and the cord between particular souls is so great, why couldn’t they continue to evolve through more than one physical lifetime?

The Tempest Murders by P.M. Terrell, reincarnation, Celtic Culture, romantic suspense, romanceIn The Tempest Murders, Detective Ryan O’Clery is an Irish immigrant and staunch Catholic investigating a serial killer in North Carolina. He, a bit like myself, has had dreams his entire life—dreams of a twin soul and a life halfway around the world and nearly two centuries earlier. When he discovers a journal kept by an uncle five generations earlier, he realizes his dreams are actually Constable Rian Kelly’s memories.

In 1839 during the worst storm to ever hit Ireland, Rian Kelly lost his lover, Caitlin O’Conor, to a serial killer. In 2011, Ryan O’Clery is investigating a string of murders eerily similar—right down to the descriptions of the victims, the unique method of death, and even the killer’s description. Ryan begins to wonder if he is the reincarnation of Rian Kelly. And when he meets a television reporter who is a dead ringer for the woman in his dreams, he becomes convinced that Cathleen Reilly is the reincarnation of his lost soul mate, Caitlin O’Conor.

As Hurricane Irene bears down on the coast, events begin to play out just as they had in 1839, and Ryan knows if he doesn’t alter his and Cathleen’s destinies, they will relive their fate over and over again.

It brings up the intriguing questions: Do you believe in reincarnation? And are we destined to relive history? Or can we alter our own fate?

The Tempest Murders

by P.M. Terrell

Goddess Fish Partner

A provocative story of a love that spans centuries, of soul mates found, lost and reunited… and the lengths to which one man will go to change their destiny.

Irish Detective Ryan O’Clery is working a series of homicides in America when he discovers a journal written by an uncle, Constable Rian Kelly, five generations earlier. The journal detailed the same type of murders as the worst storm in Ireland’s history slammed into the island in 1839.

As Hurricane Irene barrels toward the North Carolina coastline, Ryan discovers even the killer’s description matches his cases exactly. And as he falls in love with television reporter Cathleen Reilly, he begins to wonder if she is the reincarnation of Caitlin O’Conor, Rian Kelly’s lover—the woman who was lost to the killer as the storm raged in Ireland—and if he is the reincarnation of Constable Rian Kelly.

Now he’s in a race to rescue Cathleen before the killer finds her—or is history destined to repeat itself?

    I think the idea of reincarnation is intriguing. When I was little, even though born & raised in Houston, my folks said I talked with an English accent when I was a toddler. Then when I was three I had the London flu. Even as a teen when I took voice lessons, I was told I sound British when I sing 😉

    That is so cool, Andrea!! I had a friend who told me that her son, when a toddler, could recount precise things to her that she’d done WHILE HE WAS IN HER WOMB — as if he’d been a “guardian angel,” watching over her. There is SO MUCH MORE to life and death than many of us dare to think. Hugs! ~ A

    Welcome back, Natasha! Reincarnation IS pretty cool, isn’t it? I touch briefly on the idea at the end of SEDUCED BY AN ANGEL, but the fantasy novels I’m writing tend to explore the topic in more depth. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, here!
