Desperate to find the truth, Jenna enlists two unlikely allies in her quest: Serenity Jones, a psychic who rose to fame finding missing persons, only to later doubt her gifts, and Virgil Stanhope, the jaded private detective who?d originally investigated Alice?s case along with the strange, possibly linked death of one of her colleagues.
