Bree Winston-Beaufort moves to Savannah after her Uncle Franklin dies in an office fire. She inherited his law practice, but she doesn't realize that she is also taking over his place in a group called the Company which rights wrongs done to those who are deceased.

First Bree must find office space to use while her uncle's building is being restored. She finds just the right address, off trendy Bay Street, but the house is in the middle of a graveyard for murderers. The rent is right though and owner Lavinia is anxious to have her move in.

Before she even sets up her office and hires help, Bree has her first case. She is hired by a former employee of billionaire Ben Skinner. The employee is being haunted by Skinner and she wants Bree to find his murderer.

Skinner's case is closed. The official report says he drowned while ocean fishing with his son and daughter-in-law. Despite dreams and unusual phenomenon both at home and at the office, Bree pushes ahead with a case she isn't sure she believes in.

Stanton introduces us to an original and appealing Savannah lawyer who works with a cast of angels, including a dog named Sasha. Bree Winston-Beaufort is sure to find her own niche in the paranormal mysteries market.
