Zoë Martinique has the ability to astrally travel. With the help of some friends and her mother, she's used this ability to earn a living as a detective, more of less. She gets information for her clients and they don't need to know how she does it. One night while bored and watching a target for a client, she decides to investigate a feeling. The feeling leads her to be a witness to a crime: a murder. That's bad enough but the murderer "saw" Zoë. He not only saw her he grabbed her arm and left a mark of his hand and a lovely Rogue-ish white streak in her hair. Now Zoë is changing; she's becoming something else, something darker, and with some scary powers. From official release/information:
From back of book: Zoe Martinique was just your average, single female, past 25, looking for love and/or exciting job opportunities. Until life handed her the dubious ability to travel outside of her body at will--which she turned into a career, hiring herself out as a literal spook. Industrial espionage, domestic surveillance, you name it--when she is traveling she can see but can't be seen...
Then one night things get out of hand while she is out-of-body: Zoe witnesses a murder. What's worse, the killer is also a traveler--and he most definitely not only sees her but tries to pursue her.
To save herself, Zoe must somehow guide the very handsome detective assigned to the case to the truth without revealing herself. And with the help of her semi-psychic mom, a pari of gay ghosts, and her best friend (a Goth techno witch), she also has to figure out exactly who--and what--the murderer is, before he finds her and puts an end to her traveling--permanently.
