Inge_Meldgaard: Set in twenty-fifth century Australia, the Brisbane Peacekeeping Force is called in to investigate the death of a young woman, whose body is found in an isolated bushland area near the small Queensland town of Stanthorpe. The Peacekeepers are accompanied by their cat, Shela, who uses her telepathic powers to help solve this increasingly unusual case. The dead woman's life is gradually revealed, together with her secrets, until the past collides with the present in a haunting conclusion. At times shocking, this sequel to The Cicada is a story of despair, betrayal, loss and redemption: a story of darkness and of the power of love.

Scribelle: For anyone who has not read her work, ingemelgaard is phenomenal. Her attention to detail, the believable future, and the extraordinary mysteries she creates and solves are gripping. The addition of relating to cats is a fun addition and also makes us think about how we all think. I have read "The Cicada" and highly recommend it. I am now devouring "A Death in the Making." I purchased both books, and they have been the best stories I've bought all year.
