The hunt for the goose becomes a hunt for a murderer, and everything is connected to a rise in racial tensions that could plunge Baltimore into open war. The search for a killer threatens everything and everyone Mira loves; from the city she calls her home to the witch who holds her heart.
For them, she’ll do it for the truth.
For herself. . .she’ll do it for revenge.
