A failed psychic medium is forced to work with a government agent to close a gate to the afterlife before it releases the dead back into the world of the living.
Val Ferrel was once a successful psychic medium for the Boston Police Department, until a botched case blew out her abilities and ended her career. Fleeing to the West Coast to escape family responsibilities, she struggles to make ends meet. When a simple job for a ghost-hunting show puts her in contact with an angry ghost and activates startling new psychic abilities, Val knows she’s in over her head.
Agent Daniel Norris, director of the Agency of Extra Sensory Remedy and Response, is cool, confident, and plans everything to the last detail. His Agency’s directive is to prevent the aristocratic psychic Families from returning to dynastic rule; his mission is to control a feisty psychic the Agency blames for the appearance of a new gate to the afterlife. But as Val destroys plan after well-laid plan, Daniel never dreams they’ll both hold the key to solving the case.
Working with the stuffy Agency director is the least of Val’s problems. Can she stay hidden from her own family before the aristocratic syndicates move in? More importantly, will she be able to control her own powers before the living fall prey to the dead?
Following the events of book 1, Val Ferrel uncovers a decades-old conspiracy that threatens to undermine the delicate truce between psychics and non-psychics.
Val Ferrel, the first oracle since the Sundering, feels like a total failure. Unable to siphon energy through the gate and control her own unstable powers, she returns to what she does best—finding the dead.
The case of a missing high-profile psychic executive seems tailored made for her. Wanting to shield Val from the threat he’s envisioned, the precognitive Agency director Daniel Norris insists she stay close to the gate.
Ignoring Daniel’s warning, Val enlists the aid of security head Philippe Toussaint and discovers a growing number of missing people that include members of powerful psychic Families. Val’s insistence on digging further gets dangerously close to uncovering a secret others have killed to keep. With the murderers closing in, Val struggles to master her oracle powers, deal with her celebrity status, and placate her meddling stage mother.
