Psychic-sleuthing duo Marion and Amanda, after recouping from solving their last harrowing mystery, are up for some R&R (retirement and relaxation). They sing up for an alcohol inks class at the local JC. In Marion's first painting, a face emerges, and "calls" to her. Not just any face, but the face of a recently missing elderly woman from a rest home. What they didn't count on was tangling with a serial killer. So much for retirement.
