The most dazzling illusions can’t hide the darkest secrets
In the 1930s, Adelaide Blake escapes from a private sanitarium. Desperate to start over, she arrives in the seaside resort town of Burning Cove, California, where drug dealers, gangsters, and grifters hide behind facades of glamour and power.
Working at an herbal tea shop, she sells hangover cures and tonics to Hollywood movers and shakers. One such customer is Jake Truett, a widowed businessman in town for a therapeutic rest.
Into this make-believe world comes psychic-to-the-stars Madame Zolanda. Adelaide and Jake know better than to fall for her con. But when the medium becomes a victim of her own dire prediction, they are drawn into a world of duplicity and misdirection—where they find connections to the woman Adelaide used to be.
