Mira Chambers has an infallible gift for solving mysteries ...but using it comes with a price. Determined to regain her independence after ten years in orphanages, asylums and high security 'health sanctuaries' Mira leaps at the chance to help her friend Bennet Chiron, an enigmatic ex-con who risked his life to save hers and lost both his health and career in the process. Mira plans to investigate the murder-robbery that put him behind bars for six years in the hope of clearing his name so he can at least start his life afresh. But the people who framed him are turning up dead under bizarre circumstances and while following the leads Mira discovers that she's being hunted by two old adversaries - and protected by a shadow-lurking bodyguard who's keen on her heart as well as her safety. Layers of secrets are ripped wide open and Mira discovers that she's not the only one with a steep price to pay.
