Flora Hansen calls herself a medium and makes a living by pretending to commune with the dead, but after a gruesome murder at a rural home for wayward girls, Hansen begins to suffer visions that are all too real. In this bestselling third novel in the series (following The Hypnotist and The Nightmare) Joona Linna is the only detective willing to take Hansen seriously, even though some of her claims disagree with the evidence. Linna's investigation soon puts him at risk, however, and he will experience a shocking confrontation with a figure from his past.
