Powerful and corrupt U.S. Senator Horace Chester is stabbed to death in a Murder Bay brothel, wrapped in the arms of his evening's entertainment. His assailant escapes into the crush of unwashed bodies filling the streets of 1890 Washington's notorious red light district — just a few blocks from the President's House.

Amanda Duncan, young Washington widow, tries to ignore the clairvoyant visions that flash before her eyes. She couldn't save her own family, so maybe her visions can help others. Now, Amanda deliberately treads where no respectable lady would dare. This latest vision was most troubling. She saw a man stabbed to death by a shadowy assailant and a young girl screaming.

Devlin Burke, English investor and sometime sleuth, is in Washington on family business and to rescue his nephew Freddie who's gone bankrupt in one of Sen. Chester's investment schemes. In a fit of rage, Freddie attacked Chester in a crowded Capitol Hill hallway only days before the senator's murder. Freddie has no alibi and is now the police inspector's prime suspect.

Devlin and Amanda join forces in a search to find the real killer, which takes them from the Capital's poshest salons into the crime-infested streets of Murder Bay. Devlin's sleuthing instincts and Amanda's psychic detection lead them ever closer to the truth. But the closer they approach, the more desperate the killer becomes — -and the more dangerous.
