Shelley Caldwell's career as a Chicago homicide detective is
complicated by her city's supernatural underground, her
abilities as a sensitive and her half-vampire lover, Jake
Meeting a crazy banshee with visions of someone drowning in
a trunk is the latest strange incident. Shelley ignores the
warning-until famous illusionist Sebastian Cole reveals his
new trick: escaping from a locked trunk submerged in the
Chicago River. Sebastian gets out alive, but a woman across
town isn't so lucky. Then another person is found killed in
circumstances eerily similar to one of Sebastian's acts.
Shelley is certain there's a link between the magician and
the murders. Even more unsettling is the way Sebastian
invades her mind and stirs her senses. Not to mention Jake's
negative reaction to the man. Can Shelley fight off
Sebastian's supernatural influence to determine if he's the
killer...or another victim?
