Graciela Harper would like nothing better than to nurse her broken heart and hide from the world, but some problems get bigger the longer they’re left to sit. She’s about to stand trial for her father’s murder, and whoever killed him did a thorough job of setting her up. And, to make matters worse, a sinister new ghost has taken to following her around.
If Gracie wants to avoid being wrongfully convicted, she’ll have to solve her father’s murder herself. The few clues she’s found indicate a connection between his death and his ability to see ghosts, a talent that has manifested in generations of Fourniers. With the help of her half-brother, Gracie follows the thorny branches of her father’s family tree, seeking answers. But the more they learn about the Fourniers, past and present, the more it starts to seem as if their father’s violent death wasn’t an aberration.
Gracie has found her way out of plenty of fixes, but she fears this one might finally take away her freedom—or her life.
