A year ago, archaeologist Leslie MacIntyre barely survived the explosion that took the life of her fiance, Matt Connolly. In the long months since, she's slowly come to terms with her unsettling new ability to communicate with ghosts, a dubious 'gift' received in the wake of her own brush with death.
Now she's returned to the site of the explosion, to conquer her fears and investigate a newly discovered burial ground. In this place, restless spirits hold the secrets not only of past injustice but of a very real and very contemporary conspiracy with deadly designs on the city's women-including Leslie herself.
Caught between the worlds of the living and the dead, Leslie struggles against the encroaching danger that threatens to overcome her.
