Graham skillfully evokes both shivers and sighs with this engrossing and often humorous story. Skeptics should probably beware, but the more open-minded probably could find a lot to like about the non-paranormal elements. Guaranteed to please Graham's many fans.

Working as a tour guide in New Orleans suits Nikki DuMonde very well. She's always felt an affinity for historic sites and the lingering energy of previous inhabitants. But until a close friend and fellow guide is found dead--thought to be murdered--Nikki's never actually seen a ghost.

Summoned to look into the killing of an undercover FBI agent, psychic investigator Brent Blackhawk is the first to realize that the two deaths might be connected--and that Nikki could be in danger. Finding love while they search for the elusive link--and the killer--is unexpected but seems somehow fated.
