"Roan West was born with an extraordinary gift: every time he touches an object, he experiences its past. He is a master psychometrist, someone who can relive memories across centuries and glean history first-hand. So far, he's spent his life as a voyeur, keeping largely to himself and using his ability to find and sell valuable antiques. But his quiet life in New Orleans is about to change. Stuart, a fellow psychometrist and Roan's closest friend, has just unearthed several "ooparts": out-of-place-artifacts, including a ring that was discovered in bedrock as old as the dinosaurs but that once belonged to Rene Descartes. Stuart soon disappears--becoming one of several psychomestrists who have either died mysteriously or vanished. Ooparts call recorded history into question--and someone wants to silence the psychometrists or harness their gifts. When Roan comes across a YouTube video of an attractive young woman who has discovered a priceless pocket watch by "sensing" it, he knows he has to warn her. But will Melicent Tilpin listen? And can Roan convince her to help him find Stuart before it's too late?"-- Provided by publisher.

This was an entertaining and surreal mix of historical fact and fantasy. I liked all three of her books but I think "The Fortune Teller" was my favorite.
