1915, and the ghosts of the dead haunt a wealthy Boston family . . . Sybil Allston is devastated by the recent deaths of her mother and sister aboard the Titanic. Hoping to heal her wounded heart, she seeks solace in the parlour of a medium who promises to contact her lost loved ones. But Sybil finds herself drawn into a strange new world where she can never be sure that what she sees or hears is real. In fear and desperation she turns to psychology professor Benton Jones - despite the unspoken tensions of their shared past . . . From the opium dens of Boston's Chinatown to the upscale salons of high society , Sybil and Benton are drawn into a world of occult magic, of truth and lies, and into a race to understand Sybil's own apparent talent for scrying before it is too late.
