New Orleans: Where the streets swirl with jazz and beauty.Where the houses breathe with ghosts. A year ago, Rebecca Brown escaped death in a New Orleans cemetery. Now, she has returned to this haunting city. She is hoping to see handsome Anton Grey, the boy who may or may not have her heart. She is not expecting to see a ghost: a troubled blue-eyed boy who insists only Rebecca can help him. Soon Rebecca finds herself embroiled in another murder mystery from more than a century ago. But as she tries to right wrongs, she finds more questions than answers: Is she putting her friends, and herself, in danger? Can she trust this new ghost? And has she stumbled into something much bigger and more serious than she understands?
