New York's most fashionable medium, Lavinia Murphy guards her past and her identity, but Edward Stuyvesant-French, the illegitimate son of a wealthy client, has sworn to ruin her, and she is forced to strike a deal that will plunge her into a dark world of both the living and the dead in order to save her family

Blackwell North Amer
It's 1881, a time when all of New York is caught up in the spiritualist frenzy, and nothing is more fashionable than attending a seance. In Manhattan, there is no medium more revered than the mysterious Countess Lovaenya. It is said that even Mrs. Astor ventures to the Countess's Fifth Avenue townhouse to converse with her dear departed friends.
As mysterious as the Countess is, she keeps nothing more secret than her true identity. She wants no one to know she is really Lavinia Murphy, who fled a brutal St. Louis orphanage with four younger "siblings" and learned a spiritualist's ways from the carnies and gypsies she met on the road to New York City.
But now that she has built a career and a safe haven for her troubled family, Lavinia is confronted by a phantom more fearsome than any she's ever conjured in her shadowy parlor. For Edward Stuyvesant-French - the illegitimate son of Lavinia's wealthiest, and most frequent client - has vowed to destroy her.
