ook 1 of the Grumpy Old Wizard Series

Category six wizard, Josephine O’Connor, is called in to help with a series of murders involving dark magic. Unfortunately, the killer covers his tracks very well and destroys virtually all trace of psychometric energy which makes the crime scene unreadable - even for a talent such as Josephine. By all rights, Josephine shouldn't be forced to contend with this case. After all, she's a retired eighty-year-old and she can hardly be blamed for having a beautiful body akin to a woman in her mid-twenties. It's just one of the perks of being a rare category six.
Josephine's problems pile up to insurmountable odds as the killer grows stronger, Detective Riley pesters her for a quick resolution to this challenging case, and her obnoxious neighbor starts harassing her just because she looks too young to live in a retirement community.
