My life is in danger . . .

I’m sure of it, but no one will listen.  I'm Evandra Gamble and I'll admit I'm an old lady.  I know that.  But that doesn’t mean I’m dotty.  I’m in danger and I know she wants me dead.  But I can’t seem to get anyone to listen and believe me. 
 When I first heard about Julia Bonatti and her astrological talents, I was sure she was the one.  I was positive she was someone who who would understand, who could help me.  Now . . . I’m not certain at all.  Even Julia looks at me like I might be suffering from dementia.  Even she doesn’t seem convinced that I’m in danger in this rambling old house.  

Oh, yes, Julia tells me I’m suffering through a Neptune transit and my energy is depleted and even my thinking is foggy and blah . . . blah . . . blah . . . but I know she doesn’t grasp the urgency.  I may be old but I’m not crazy.  I still have some time left and I’ll be damned if I'll let anyone take that away from me! 
And if weren’t for my broken hip, I could get around.  I’d be up and about.  I could go for help.  But I can’t.  I’m so isolated up here on Telegraph Hill, there’s no way I can escape. 

It’s taking so damned long for these old bones to heal.  Thank heavens I have my companion and my housekeeper living here.  I wouldn’t stand a chance if there weren’t other people around to protect me.  I know they’d be carrying me out the door feet first.  

I have to get someone to believe me.  And after what happened to our gardener, I know the clock is ticking.  I’m running out of time. 

Why won’t anyone believe me?

You can read all about my dilemma in The Madness of Mercury, the first book in the Zodiac Mysteries.  Or you can visit my author, Connie di Marco, at her website, Facebook or Twitter @askzodia.  Please ask her to send help!
