Zara Riddle is used to being woken up in the middle of the night by magical creatures. Being a witch is incredibly fun, but it does have a few drawbacks. Zara's powers make her appealing to the recently deceased, who are always showing up seeking her help. This witch is a real ghost magnet!
When Zara's resident telepathic wyvern wakes her up to announce there's a new ghost in the house, Zara is anything but surprised. She greets the new spirit, locates the crime scene, and notifies the authorities. All before the sun comes up. Zara's work is done. After all, the town's detective should be able to solve this homicide without her.
The detective, Theodore Bentley, has other ideas. He knows about Wisteria's secrets, but he's not the stubborn type who insists on doing everything himself. Why chase down a killer alone when you can have a powerful witch as a partner? He invites Zara to join him on the investigation. Zara accepts, because why not? She'll rest easier when the case is solved. Plus two heads are better than one, even if one of them is a mere human.
As the crime-fighting duo dig deeper into the town's secrets, both the human detective and the witch are shocked to discover a killer in their midst. When they underestimate the killer's powers, the tables are turned. In a heartbeat, everything changes.
Zara Riddle can only watch helplessly as someone she cares about saves the witch's life by sacrificing their own.
