The police are convinced that Julia Ransom is guilty of the brutal murder of her husband, A renowned psychic, but after six months of investigation and media frenzy she is free of their scrutiny, because of the lack of evidence.

One afternoon at the the wharf, a respectable-looking man distracts her with conversation, strikes her unconscious, and heaves her over the rail into San Francisco Bay.

Although in his heart he knows that this woman can't possibly be his missing wife, Dix is compelled to see her with his own eyes.

As the stakes and the body count rise, Dix, Cheney, and others fight for answers — and their lives.
