The Oracle Files: Escape presents a new insight into an old world from the psychic perspective of Elizabeth Beeson Chase. Cursed by her mother at age six, Elizabeth is forced to battle Malachai, an angry West African ghost, as she rises from slave to Quaker, to "Blue Vein" Socialite, in the harsh Black and White world of 1850 New York. With the help of her Quaker father and her spirit guide, she creates a shelter of love wherever she goes. However, the raging storm of racism, the looming threat of slavery, and Malachai's relentless hauntings pelt her life with indomitable fear. After a painful betrayal sends her running into New York's dangerous FIVE POINTS, she emerges with a gypsy's secret to battle Malachai and racism. Freed from Malachai's ghostly grip, and ready to embrace her secret "Blue Vein" world, she quickly discovers her freedom will cost more than she is willing to pay.
