Blood is thicker than water . . . and murder is best kept in the family


Kate Bender has killed before.

She has felt the warm trickle of a man's blood. Known what it is like to hold his life in her hands. But that is in the past.

Laying low in a new town, she vows to change. When she gains the locals' trust as an esteemed medium, a life closer to virtue finally seems within reach.

But can Kate deny her lingering urges?

For while the town praise her promising work, she is drawn to darker business behind closed doors . . .
