Memphis socialite Nell Marchand never meant to become a psychic. Not a real one, anyway. And if she has to be cursed with the true sight, she wishes the dadgum thing would at least perform on command. When a family friend disappears from a magician's mummy case onstage and turns up dead, Nell sets out to unmask the killer. Medium Joseph Calendar warns her that she's putting her own life in peril, but she can't turn her back on the people counting on her. Soon, Nell finds herself knee-deep in murder, miracles, that old-time religion, and an ancient rivalry or two.
