Amelia Gray restores graveyards for a living and also has a gift passed down from her father - she can see ghosts. Amelia's father gave her rules, very strict rules to follow. Number one rule was to totally ignore ghosts or she would open heself to disaster. But Amelia chose to break the rules.

Three ghosts have now appeared - Robert Fremont, Shani and Mariama. Robert Fremont wants her help to find his murderer, so he can move on. Shani is a little girl who would like Amelia to find her so she can get away from the dark man and be at peace. Last is Shani's mother Mariama, with evil intentions towards Amelia.

Amelia loves John Devlin, who is being haunted by two of these ghosts, Mariama and Shani who lost their lives when their car went over the bridge. They are his late wife and child, which of course keeps Amelia at a distance from him. So, with all of this to do, and trying to keep her sanity, Amelia decides that rules were made to be broken. Hopefully she will unravel the mysteries and find out how they are all connected before it is too late.

Though this episode can be read on its own, I recommend reading The Restorer and The Kingdom first. The characters are neatly woven and complement each other. The author keeps readers guessing all the way through, with edge of your seat suspense. When things go bump in the night you had better watch out ...
