Emma Rayburn had a quiet and uneventful life in Baron Hollow, North Carolina, until the accident. Then the nightmares began -- each filled with unshakable visions of darkness and blind panic. Emma has written it off to troubled imaginings. Jessie Rayburn, psychic investigator for a firm called Haven, a civilian offshoot of the Special Crimes Unit, has been estranged from Emma for years. Unresolved issues have not only kept the sisters apart but have been clouding Jessie's unique abilities. A return to her hometown to face a dark and violent incident from years gone by is her chance to regain her gift. Few people in Baron Hollow are welcoming Jessie back. No one dares to breathe a word.

Publishers Weekly, 2012-06-18 Jessie Rayburn returns to her hometown of Baron Hollow, N.C., to excise the personal ghosts of her adolescence in Hooper's 13th Special Crimes Unit paranormal investigation (after Blood Ties). She's a psychic investigator with a "singular lack of imagination," so she's not particularly surprised to find some real ghosts. What does come as a surprise is that her sister, Emma, is developing her own latent psychic powers, and the locals are being stalked by a serial killer. Jessie's fellow Haven employee, Nathan Navarro, is on the killer's trail, as are a journalist and a group of ghost hunters, but they all act in isolation, increasing their risk and lessening their chances of success. The juxtaposition of the idyllic town and the sadistic sociopath makes the horrors of the crimes stand out, but the basic investigative errors made by just about all of the characters seem to come straight from a schlock horror film with the audience yelling, "Don't go in there!"
