It is hard to imagine what would possess a woman to develop a career as a stunt woman but Darcy Lott has done just that. Darcy has returned to San Francisco after a long absence and estrangement from her family. Darcy has returned to serve as an assistant to her Zen teacher, Leo Garson, in his new zendo. The disappearance of Darcy’s brother, Mike, eleven years ago had left Darcy reeling with shock and only now has she chosen to return to the city where she grew up.

Her fame as a stunt woman has gained her a job immediately upon her return and as she is ready to do a thirty-five foot dive to the sidewalk below she spots a man walking across a roof and he is the image of Mike. Darcy follows him but is unable to catch him.

Later Darcy is to discover that there is a Mike lookalike and he is the person that has helped arrange for the new zendo. His name is Eamon Lafferty and Darcy learns he has become close friends with other members of Darcy’s family. Eamon appears at the preview of the new Zendo with a beautiful woman in tow. It turns out that she is Tia Dru. Darcy has known Tia since she was fourteen. Tia was very close to Mike back then.

As Tia and Darcy begin to renew their friendship Darcy becomes convinced that Tia may have information that will help her understand Mike’s disappearance and the reasons. Darcy finds that Tia has secrets of her own.

Darcy finds that danger lurks around her new friends and sets Darcy on a dangerous path of discovery. A very exciting, fast moving book with wonderful descriptions of the city and the Zen culture. The reader will finally attend the Ceremony of the Hungry Ghosts but mystery, danger and death come first.
