A charlatan is haunted by sinister secrets and spirits from his past in this Gothic novel of the Reconstruction Era.

Boston, 1870. Photographer Edward Moody has gained fame and fortune capturing the images of spirits in his photo portraits. He lures grieving widows and mourning mothers into his studio with promises of catching the ghosts of their deceased loved ones with his camera. But his elaborate hoax is about to yield shocking results . . .

While attempting to capture the spirit of an abolitionist senator's young son, a different spectral figure develops before Moody's eyes. The camera has seemingly captured the spirit of a beautiful young woman from Moody's past—the daughter of an escaped slave he knew long ago. He immediately sets out for the Louisiana bayou to resolve their unfinished business—and perhaps save his soul . . .
