2014. Newly engaged, Dr. Quinn Allenby is called upon to examine the skeletal remains of a woman and child found buried naked and face down in non-consecrated ground on the fringes of a leper cemetery. Quinn must use her psychic gift to unearth the secrets that led to the death of the victims, since there isn't much else to go on, and to discover why the deceased were denied a Christian burial and humiliated even in death, a punishment reserved only for the truly wicked and depraved. But as Quinn delves into this disturbing new case, she must confront secrets that are much more recent and closer to home. Some have the power to destroy her future with Gabe, while others may finally shed light on her true parentage and lead her to the source of her unwelcome gift.

The first novel by multiple-award-winning Chilean author Ram�n D�az Eterovic to be translated into English--a landmark event for fans of crime fiction. Private investigator Heredia spends his days reading detective novels; commiserating with his cat, Simenon; and peering out over the Mapocho River from his Santiago apartment. The city he loves may be changing, but Heredia can't stop chasing the ghosts of the past. This time, they've come to him... Virginia Reyes's brother, an ex-political prisoner of dictator Augusto Pinochet, was killed in an apparent robbery. Yet nothing of value was taken. The police have declared the case closed, but Virginia suspects that things aren't quite as they appear and turns to Heredia for help. Heredia couldn't agree more--but he can't shake the feeling that there's something Virginia's not telling him. Heredia knows this is not a simple crime. His investigation proves it. Drawn back into a world where murderers nest, secrets are to kill and die for, and Pinochet's legacy still casts a long, dark, and very threatening shadow, it's all Heredia can do to crawl out of it alive.

But the killers want the mirror too, and danger threatens the teens at every turn.
