Daisy Goodnight is a student and a spiritual consultant to the FBI, meaning that she helps the FBI solve difficult cases by talking to the spirits and psychic remnants. Daisy is brought in to investigate a missing person case, where a young girl was kidnapped after her bodyguard was murdered. But Daisy herself is kidnapped by the missing girl's father, the mob boss Devlin Maguire, who manages to receive a magical promise from Daisy that she will find the missing girl no matter what happens. Daisy and one of Devlin's henchmen, Carson set out to find Mr. Maguire's daughter, Alexis. But as they follow the clues given by various spirits, they discover that an ancient cult called the Brotherhood of the Black Jackal is involved somehow in Alexis's disappearance. On the run from both the FBI and the Brotherhood, Daisy must unravel the mystery of the missing girl, while also making sure her feelings for Carson, who might be nursing a few deadly secrets of his own, don't endanger her life.
Best part of story, including ending:
The plot was intriguing, but there were a lot of spiritual mumbo-jumbo and technicalities that I could have done without. They were unnecessarily convoluted and confusing.
Best scene in story:
My favorite scene is the scene in Alexis's grandmother's graveyard because it was spooky and thrilling.
Opinion about the main character:
Daisy is snarky and sarcastic. She also doesn't turn into a mushy puddle every time Carson looks her way. She is likeable and not at all Bella-from-Twilight-esque.
