Abby Radwell puts her unusual psychic talent to work by freelancing as a rare book code breaker. Because there are those who would hire her for nefarious purposes, she only works with carefully screened clients. Then she receives a blackmail threat and, at the urging of her mentor, turns to Sam Coppersmith, a specialist in paranormal crystals, for assistance. As it happens, Sam’s father Elias has him on the hunt for a 40-year-old encrypted lab notebook that contains dangerous information. Because of Abby’s unique ability, Sam suspects that her blackmailer is also hunting for the notebook. Old secrets have a way of coming to light … which could be very dangerous indeed.
