Evangeline has been recruited into the Celestial Hierarchy’s version of the CIA, and she’s ready to take on her first official assignment. She and her old flame, Christian, are asked to help 16-year-old Gabriella find her father—an inventor who disappeared in 1925 while demonstrating a new illusion for the famous magician, Harry Houdini. The task sounds simple enough but there’s a problem. The trio of ghosts need to make contact with Houdini who is on a public tour to debunk psychics, clairvoyants, and charlatans. As far as he’s concerned, ghosts do not exist. If Evangeline can’t get through to Houdini, she will have failed her first mission, and Gabriella’s heart will break. But more importantly, she may have to bend the Celestial Hierarchy’s very rigid rules of ghostly comportment in an attempt to contact the magician, and that could result in her losing her privilege to return to Earth to bring her own assassin to justice.
