New York Times & USA Today Bestselling series!
A dead psychic, a cold case, and a pair of Hollywood's hottest stars have one fashion designer stepping out of her heels and onto the case!

Fashion designer Maddie Springer has always been close to her best friend, Dana. So when Dana's celebrity husband Ricky is chosen for a reading on the Hollywood Psychic TV show, Maddie's thrilled to be at the taping! That is, until the over-the-top psychic, Moira DeVine, suddenly suggests that the accidental death of Ricky's mother years ago was actually murder and promises to name the culprit... right before she herself collapses, dying in front of the viewing audience!

While Maddie has her doubts about whether DeVine was really getting messages from the other side or just acting the part, one thing is for sure—she's not acting dead. And the coincidental timing has Maddie wondering if the two deaths decades apart are related. Could a killer actually have been worried that DeVine had uncovered their crime? With the help of her eccentric family and friends, Maddie digs into the cold case that hits perilously close to home, uncovering secret love affairs, con artists, missing money, and even ties to the mob! Between the suburban secrets from years ago and the shady practices of the recently deceased so-called psychic, Maddie has no shortage of suspects. But is she looking for one killer or two? Where are they hiding now? And can Maddie get to the truth before they strike again...and she finds herself designing shoes from the other side?
