When Detectives Matt Conley and Danny Angelo are called to the site of a grisly murder in a forest north of Boston, they begin a journey that will span New England – and challenge their beliefs about reality and the supernatural.
Gypsies in a nearby campground lead Angelo to accuse knife-thrower Luca Starbird of the crime, while Conley’s in no shape to judge. His wife is dying, and Luca’s sister Gina bears an uncanny resemblance to the vibrant woman Lisa once was. The two could be twins.
Luca escapes custody, and Conley and Angelo give chase. Another horrific murder raises the stakes. Tragedy strikes in the White Mountains and Conley snaps. He goes into hiding with the Gypsies on the Maine seacoast, pursuing a mission of justice and redemption only he can unravel or understand.
Does Conley truly believe Luca is innocent? Or has he fallen under the spell of an enchanting Gypsy?
