At Overcross Castle, in the foothills of the Malverns, in the 1870s, the medium Anthony Abblow carried out certain experiments under the patronage of the wealthy industralist Barnaby Crole. Over a century later, their work proves inspirational to a number of very iffy operators. All they need to develop their plans is a medium. A really good medium. Someone like Seffi Callard, whose clients may have included the late Princess Diana.
Grayle Underhill is unfortunately present when the bad guys come for Seffi. Time to involve DI Bobby Maiden, who still has problems of his own and would not, in any circumstances, have chosen to come up against the 'reformed' gangland hard-man Gary Seward, for whom getting rich is rather less important than never getting dead.
