Crescent City, 1934...
In Crescent City, the dead are always close.
At the point of death, people can choose to become Ghosts, tethered to the living. They can remain with their loved ones as invisible companions - or in the case of Crescent City's ghostly mayor, remain in office forever.
Being a P.I. in Crescent City isn't easy or glamorous. Luckily Lola Starke has an edge: her Ghost, Aubrey, who can gather valuable clues from other Ghosts in the Ether. When they accept a simple missing-persons case, they're drawn into a complicated web of lies and double-crosses that involves the most powerful people in the city - including Lola's own mother, Grace McCall, a famous film star and the mayor's former lover.
As Lola races to untangle the deceit ensnaring her, she discovers an old enemy at its center carefully orchestrating the perfect moment to betray Lola and destroy Aubrey forever...unless Lola and Aubrey can stop them first.
