Our story opens on New Year’s Eve 1926 with the event of the year, “Famed Medium Horace Stapleton to Defy Death in Public Ceremony”

Agent Elliot Matthews and his partner Connor Finnegan are tasked with discovering the truth hidden in the illusion. Along the way, more mysteries are uncovered that only weave the story tighter and truth further from grasp.

Wren Lockhart is one of the Vaude performers. She is fiercely independent, thwarting every offer of any kind of assistance with her signature answer, “I have no interest in any entanglements. And no matter how many smooth talkers come along, I won’t be convinced otherwise.” A deep well of hidden secret is the only thing that Wren holds close, that and a book of Welsh Fairy tales.  Over time, brick by brick we begin to peel away the layers.

Kristy Cambron has crafted a story rich in detail and woven together an intricate tapestry of mystery. The characters are complex and well-developed.  The history well researched.   I would recommend this story to anyone looking for a Christian mystery.
