The ghosts are angry, thinking I've neglected them. Do not forget us, they call out from the grave. I won't, I promise them. Upon my life, I won't.
Being a demigoddess in 1892 Stonehenge, Colorado isn't all one might suppose, especially when the dead are involved. Yet as Veritas of the Rocky Mountain sovereignty, it is Hester Grayson's calling to help restless spirits cross over by bringing their killers to justice. Blind and pale as an albino, she dwells on the fringes of the nouveau riche, working with her telepathic beau Tom Craddock to catch the guilty.
When a young woman is brutally murdered, Hester and Tom are determined to solve the case as they have every other. But this one demands more. The killer wears many faces and wields greater magic than even Hester possesses. All sleuthing stops, however, when Tom is gravely wounded and Hester is cast out of her parent's mansion into the squalor of an asylum.
At the mercy of an insane doctor, surrounded by agitated ghosts, Hester fights to maintain her own sanity by planning her escape and the downfall of her enemies. Can she achieve her goal and expose the madman who sent her to hell? Or will he continue his bloody reign in Stonehenge?
"Brilliant. Witty. An absolute must read. Hester is Sherlock Holmes with the ultimate twist. She'll be your favorite new heroine within a page." --Jen Greyson, author of the Tesla Time Traveler's series
