North Chastain possesses the ability to track down the most dangerous psychic criminals. But when his father suddenly falls comatose at the hands of a deadly artefact, North is at a loss. Tracking down killers might be his forte, but to locate the relic he's going to need a psychic with an intimate knowledge of the shadowy underworld of dealers and collectors...
Disgraced antiques expert Sierra Raines is looking to begin again. Resorting to the shady paranormal artefacts trade, she finds and transports valuable objects. When North Chastain requests her services, she reluctantly accepts - for North represents the Foundation, the enigmatic organisation that polices the psychic underworld, both its criminals and those - like Sierra - making a living in its shadows.
The pair soon find themselves in the town of Fogg Lake, at the scene of the 'Incident'; decades ago, a disaster in the nearby labs of the Bluestone Project, a covert government program, forever changed the town's residents. The pair unearth shocking truths about what occurred that fateful night, but they are playing with fire - someone in the town knows what they've discovered and will stop at nothing to keep the truth buried.

Their search leads to Fogg Lake, a remote lab where North's late grandfather was part of a project to create psychic weapons. The Chastain family's enemies believe these weapons still exist and will stop at nothing to get their hands on them. Over the course of their investigation, Sierra and North's sizzling chemistry builds into a powerful connection that makes them more than a match for their foes. Though the extensive cast proves difficult to untangle, the combination of romance, danger, mystery, and the occult is sure to sate Krentz's fans.
