Elixir Views mistakes Lance Minchner for a soothsaying customer when she takes his hand and reads a message of death for that very evening. Unfortunately, she must operate within a code of conduct she's helped to create to avoid destroying all her paranormal family has built, so she can not tell him the truth.
Cleverly she alters the man's plans, but a nightmare suggests the perilous blight merely postponed, not banished. New York City in 1835 proves a dangerous place as she discovers family deceit, gambling weaknesses, substantial wealth, and unhappy creditors threaten those for whom she cares. Even the assistance from a detective is helpful but she discovers that at the end of the day, vengeance still has a way of finding you.
