Working at a sex & toy shop like Chinaman Joe's Good Luck Parlor keeps Cassie in smokes and off the streets. It isn't glamorous. But it's a life. Then again, Cassie is just normal - not one of the blessed. No paranormal abilities, no telepathy, no pre-cognition. Normal. But when someone kills Cassie's best friend in the alley behind the store, the police start looking at her hard, particularly when the post-cog on the case swears she's involved, somehow.
