The crumbling purple house, wedged into an obscure Dallas neighborhood, seems the perfect place for Gypsy Larabee to hide from her abusive ex-boyfriend. But the house harbors dangerous secrets, and her investigation into the missing homeowner's whereabouts proves hazardous to Gypsy's health. Gypsy's troubles begin when she is mistaken for Ruby, the absentee homeowner, who was a fortuneteller. A few of Gypsy's chance comments prove eerily prescient, and soon she has a hoard of paying customers at her door. But her crystal-ball reading brings on the wrath of her ultra-religious neighbors, a media frenzy, and a violent gang member who is obsessed with the purple house. Karen Leabo writes a funny and exciting mystery.
