When paranormal investigator and Cambridge lecturer Dr. Nathaniel Gye is commissioned by a dead man to find his killer, he dismisses the incident as a clumsy fraud by a fake medium. But when Nathaniel's own wife disappears--an eventuality foretold by the same "unquiet spirit"--he is forced to look for connections between her predicament and the violent death of a man she never knew. Nathaniel's search leads him through a labyrinthine investigation, involving a stolen Renaissance painting and the love life of Robert and Elizabeth Browning. Drawn deep into a web of crime and deception, Nathaniel Gye has to face some difficult questions. In this dark and fast-paced mystery, long-time or first-time fans of acclaimed writer Derek Wilson will enjoy pitting their wits against the unscrupulous manipulation of the living and the dead.
