Suddenly orphaned, Kate and Georgia hope for safety at their grandparents’ calm Paris home. But danger is always nearby, as the sisters witness a miraculous rescue from the Seine River followed by a sword fight, then Kate narrowly escapes falling stone blocks in their neighborhood.
Kate is magnetically drawn to the handsome young man she sees near each incident. He introduces himself as Vincent, and his friends as students and painters. A tiny glimmer of hope peeks into her sorrow, but then Vincent disappears. How can Georgia go out partying every night while the darkness of losing their parents swallows Kate?
Things get stranger and stranger. She hears Vincent’s friend being crushed, run over by the Metro train – but how can Jules be strolling along their street the very next week? Why are Vincent and his friends always nearby when someone’s life is threatened? Why do Georgia’s new party buddies give Kate the cold shudders, while Vincent’s touch is like light and life?
A new type of paranormal creature roams the Parisian nights in this adventure-thriller with a touch of romance - Paris is Paris, after all.… Are there secrets too big for the living to understand, too strong for the dead to ignore?
