Shush…lest she awaken… 

My name is Amelia Gray, a cemetery restorer who lives with the dead. An anonymous donor has hired me to restore Woodbine Cemetery, a place where the rich and powerful bury their secrets. Forty years ago, a child disappeared without a trace and now her ghost has awakened, demanding that I find out the truth about her death. Only I know that she was murdered. Only I can bring her killer to justice. But the clues that I follow—a haunting melody and an unnamed babys grave—lead me to a series of disturbing suspects. 

For generations, The Devlins have been members of Charlestons elite. John Devlin once turned his back on the traditions and expectations that came with his birthright, but now he has seemingly accepted his rightful place. His familys secrets make him a questionable ally. When my investigation brings me to the gates of his familys palatial home, I have to wonder if he is about to become my mortal enemy.
