Necromancer Jaime Vegas sees and hears the dead (it's a family trait). At age 44, she gets what may be her last big shot at fame when she is chosen as one of several mediums to appear on a new reality show. The stated goal for the pilot is to raise the ghost of Marilyn Monroe. Her fellow mediums don't raise up much of anything. Jaime, on the other hand, discovers the ghosts of many dead children and uncovers a sinister murder conspiracy. Naturally, she earns the jealousy of her costars in the process and disrupts the producer's timetable, even as she comes to terms with her own powers -- and her future. Jaime's boyfriend, Jeremy Danvers, introduced in Bitten, is along for some of the ride. This is Armstrong's first hardcover and seventh title in the Otherworld series, which should rightly earn her many more fans.
Jaime, who knows a thing or two about showbiz, is on a television shoot in Los Angeles when weird things start to happen. As a woman whose special talent is raising the dead, her threshold for weirdness is pretty high: she’s used to not only seeing dead people but hearing them speak to her in very emphatic terms. But for the first time in her life — as invisible hands brush her skin, unintelligible fragments of words are whispered into her ears, and beings move just at the corner of her eye — she knows what humans mean when they talk about being haunted.
She is determined to get to the bottom of these manifestations, but as she sets out to solve the mystery she has no idea how scary her investigation will get. As she digs into the dark underside of Los Angeles, she’ll need as much Otherworld help as she can get in order to survive, calling on her personal angel, Eve, and Hope, the well-meaning chaos demon. Jeremy, the alpha werewolf, is also by her side offering protection. And, Jaime hopes, maybe a little more than that.
