Summary, etc.:
Young widow Hedda Krause checks into the Menger Hotel in 1915 with a trunk full of dresses, a case full of jewels, and enough cash to pay for a two-month stay, which she hopes will be long enough to meet, charm, and attach herself to a new, rich husband. Her plans are derailed when a ghostly apparition lures her into a long, dark hallway, and Hedda returns to her room to find her precious jewelry has been stolen. All her hopes for the future seem lost as her sanity comes into question. In 2017, Dini Blackstone is a fifth-generation magician, who performs at private parties, but she also gives ghost walk tours, narrating the more tragic historical events of San Antonio with familial affection. Above all, her favorite is the tale of Hedda Krause, whose memoire, My Spectral Accuser, she has almost memorized. But when Dini meets Quin Carmichael, great-great-grandson of the detective who originally investigated Hedda's case, who's come with a box full of clues that might lead to a new side of Hedda's story. Can Dini see Hedda in a new light that is worthy of God's grace? --Back cover.
