The jewel, known to paranormal folklore only as the Affix, has adopted Matt as its new keeper and in the process put his friends in danger. Protecting them means contending with a ghost-chasing website curator, hard-bargaining crows, and a motley bunch of ruthless collectors and freelancers who each want to acquire the stone for their own ends.
Chaos ensues. Even worse, order ensues. Now that the Affix is awake, increasingly wild coincidences drag friends and relentless foes alike into a deadly spiral with no escape. For Matt, keeping his sanity intact in a world of crackpots is already off the table. The only way to save his friends, and himself, may be to out-crazy them all.
