The New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Who Knew Too Much sweeps readers back to 1930s California--where the most dazzling of illusions can't hide the darkest secrets...
After escaping from a private sanitarium, Adelaide Blake arrives in Burning Cove, California, desperate to start over.
Working at an herbal tea shop puts her on the radar of those who frequent the seaside resort town: Hollywood movers and shakers always in need of hangover cures and tonics. One such customer is Jake Truett, a recently widowed businessman in town for a therapeutic rest. But unbeknownst to Adelaide, his exhaustion is just a cover.
In Burning Cove, no one is who they seem. Behind facades of glamour and power hide drug dealers, gangsters, and grifters. Into this make-believe world comes psychic to the stars Madame Zolanda. Adelaide and Jake know better than to fall for her kind of con. But when the medium becomes a victim of her own dire prediction and is killed, they'll be drawn into a murky world of duplicity and misdirection.
Neither Adelaide or Jake can predict that in the shadowy underground they'll find connections to the woman Adelaide used to be--and uncover the specter of a killer who's been real all along...

**** 4 Star Review ****
This is my second book of Amanda Quick's. I am really enjoying her stories and writing style. I am looking forward to more from her.
I was hooked on this book from the very beginning. I had no idea where it was going to go from start to end. I was hanging on every word.
This book is full of twists and turns. The mystery in this book is a meticulously created web where things are connected in ways I never would have thought. I was amazed by Quick's ability to spin such a web of connecting parts that I didn't see coming.
I am looking forward to the next book in the Burning Cove series. I have loved both books so far, and I can't wait to see where she takes me next.
