Reunited at last, Ruby and Scarlet have tried to mend their fractured relationship. But Scarlet's unwillingness to share what she did during her three week expedition has Ruby frustrated and Sean seething. When Ruby starts to remember events she never witnessed, it becomes clear that Scarlet's days of secrecy were far more nefarious than she let on.
As though that weren't enough, an enigmatic note and key entangle Ruby in an off-the-book murder investigation. Detective Alan Beauchamp will stop at nothing to uncover the truth surrounding the death of his mentor. But when he and Ruby attempt to retrieve the evidence necessary to solve the case, they soon find themselves in the killer's sights.
With unknown assailants after her and Scarlet's dark deeds surfacing, can Ruby survive long enough to find a way out of death's path, or will events already set in motion lead to her ultimate demise?
WOW!! This has twists and turns I didn't see coming. I loved having Scarlet back although she isn't quite herself. So much has happened to Ruby and she isn't done yet! Make sure you read the novella it helps a lot. It will give you a lot of A-Ha moments! At least it did for me. I love how Natusch will solve the immediate mystery, but the series still has the underlying mystery waiting to be solved. I can't wait for the next book. This is my favorite book of the series so far! I am totally obsessed with this series. If you're looking for an amazing paranormal series to obsess over this is it!!
