A lawman haunted by his past . . . a scientist haunted by her future.
Samantha Moon arrives in Hillvale— population 325 lives and countless ghosts—in a fog as thick as the one circling the aging mountain town. Bereft of friends and family, money and memory, all she has to her name is a stray cat . . . but that's apparently enough for the people of Hillvale to take her in.
L.A. investigator Chen Ling Walker's problem is too many memories. He's come to bury his tragic past in this remote California town, where his father vanished years before. Ever watchful, Walker sees how Sam's arrival disturbs the deceptive peace of Hillvale. Old bones lead to new death, stirring ancient fears and feuds.
Sam will need Walker's help to uncover the truth of who she is and face the burden that brings. But how can he accept a reality that stretches beyond the borders of what he knows -- one that contains spirits, psychics, and imaginary voices—the weirdness that ruined his life before?
And if they survive what lies ahead, will they find any way to make a future together?

A very long convoluted mystery story with ghosts, witches, greedy people, and a love story. Just OK.
The start of something good
This is the start of a series, judging by this story, of something good. I love the characters and story lines. Intriguing mix of science and the unexplainable.
Patricia rice has a way with words that will keep you turning page after page. I loved the characters and the mystery I can’t wait to read the next in this series.
