Modern-day Edinburgh. Psychic Myrrh devotes her days to contacting other people’s lost loved ones, all the while waiting for a sign that never comes from her dear departed Frank. Meanwhile, in the vaults and alleyways of the Old Town, the phenomenon of streetslip is growing stronger, tearing down the walls of time and allowing grisly characters from the past to prey on the present. Someone else’s problem? Myrrh thinks so, until her best friend Willow disappears and then it suddenly becomes personal. Enter Reyner, the irresistible stranger who has emerged from the shadows to turn Myrrh’s world upside down. Has he been sent to protect her, as he claims? Or is he hiding a dark, unearthly secret of his own?

Sandra Ireland has a delightful ability to bring her characters to life. She also can pull the reader into the story so thoroughly they can smell the fire and brimstone. I was totally enthralled by this journey into the parallel world. Her ending was a surprise, but a pleasant one. Ireland is a master weaver, bringing into the plot facts and possibilities. This is one of those books that will pop up in your memory for some time. I wanted more.
