Ned Harrison and Kitten Lang are tied together by dreams. Both have seen each other and discover who they both are. They have seen in dreams red floating feathers and flying cardinals, the unhappy dead who have been betrayed, who are pleading for help and justice to be done. All which ties to a murder case. It will take all the skills as a detective and a witch solve the case, but death says, “Danger is at the door.” And Ned Harrison will get the aid of one seen in his dream—the cardinal itself. To fight and outwit the enemy, the little bird will have his say.
