Cass Donovan is confronted by ghoulish crimes both old and new when a defunct asylum is the site of a fresh murder and a long-hidden injustice . . .


The old abandoned buildings of the Twin Forks Lunatic Asylum have always fascinated and frightened clairvoyant Cass Donovan, but she never dreamed her psychic abilities would be put to the test there. Then the new owner of the site tells her he plans to renovate it and turn it into a boarding school, and he’ll pay Cass handsomely to determine whether the place is haunted! Cass accepts his offer, but her search for hints of old ghosts soon has her looking for clues among the living when the man who hired her turns up dead.


Returning to the shuttered asylum looking for evidence of who may have wanted her client out of the way, Cass stumbles upon signs of yet another murder, even as she’s besieged by an onslaught of haunting voices from the past. When it comes to light that rival real estate developers have been hatching plans of their own for the property, Cass sees no shortage of motives for the murders, but she’ll have to find a way to quiet the disturbing voices from long ago and focus on the here and now, because whoever’s behind the killings has targeted Cass as their next victim . . .

Winter on Bay Island means fewer tourists and their contributing dollars.
Cass takes on an assignment of investigating an old hospital for the criminally insane to see if it is haunted or suitable for repurposing. Several people are interested in the valuable land on which this abandoned facility sits and each may be willing to do whatever it takes to get control.
Bee, Cass's best friend, and former psychic skeptic, convinces her that a Vlog is the best way to build her reputation. He is also one of my favorite literary characters of all time.
Her other best friend has recently become a mother and her attention and time are elsewhere for this novel. She does continue to have Cass's back, as do the two top cops in this series.
I am enjoying watching the characters grow and relationships develop.

Plenty of "woo~woo" to keep psychic fans interested, but also a good, solid plot and old fashioned research goes into solving a present murder and related crimes. There are hints at some things to come as well. We'll have to wait and see, which means there must be another book in this well loved series! YAY!

Fans of Hallmark's now defunct Good Witch series and Alice Hoffman's infamous book and movie Practical Magic and fans of Paula Brackston will all adore Cass and her community.
Beast doesn't play as large a role in this book but his presence always adds some brightness.

Another 5 star read, satisfying solution and promise of more good things to come!
