In 1920s Los Angeles, Letitia Hawking inhabits the veil between life and death. Using her scrying bowl to experience the final moments of the deceased, Letitia brings what little closure she can to her clients, allowing them to move on with their lives. Grief-stricken war widows and mourning families find peace when they visit Letitia. She knows no such peace. For Letitia, it's penance.For Alasdair Driscoll, Letitia's abilities offer the chance to save his beloved niece, Finola, from her nightmares and-as he fears-her growing insanity. But when Letitia sees a shadowy figure attached to the Driscoll family, old fears of her unspeakable past in England surface. She refuses to help him, despite his money and insistence. Instead, Letitia finds herself facing a father whose young daughter has been kidnapped-the third girl to have gone missing in as many months. Evading a determined Mr. Driscoll, a man used to getting his way, proves difficult. And as the darkness creeps in, Letitia makes the connection between the missing girls and Finola: the shadows haunting her visions. Letitia thought she could find refuge in a new, burgeoning city, far from her past. But she'll discover that unless she helps Mr. Driscoll rid his niece of her nightmares, the shadows will haunt Letitia-risking not only her newfound sanctuary but also her very sanity.
