Clara Johnson can talk to spirits – a gift that saved her during her darkest moments, now a curse that’s left her indebted to the cunning spirit world.
So when a powerful spirit offers her an opportunity to gain her freedom, Clara seizes the chance. The task: steal a magical ring from the wealthiest woman in the District.
Clara can’t pull off this daring heist alone. To pull off the impossible, she’ll need help from an unlikely team: from a handsome jazz musician able to hypnotize with a melody, to an aging actor who can change his face.
But as conflict in the spirit world begins to leak into the human one – an insidious mystery is unfolding, one that could cost Clara her life.
