Small-town librarian Ophelia Jensen is finally starting to embrace her lot as one of the "chosen"—a psychic and folk magick practitioner, a.k.a. a witch. Expert loving guidance from her magickally adept grandmother Abby helps—and adopting Tink, an exceptionally talented teenage medium, has given Ophelia's life new purpose . . . until a brutal murder clouds the sunshine of their days.

Ophelia's co-worker and best friend, Darci, is distraught when her cousin is implicated in the small Iowa town of Summerset's most recent murder—the violent death of a biker. Unfortunately for Darci's cousin, it's her fingerprints all over the murder weapon. She claims she's innocent, but it'll take Ophelia and Abby more than a good incantation or two to get to the bottom of this crime—what with ghosts, crooked cops, secret identities, and a small army of outlaw bikers thrown into this devil's brew.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best one yet! It has been 9 months since Ophelia and Abby’s last adventure. Ophelia has taken Tink in to raise as her own, and the last 9 months have been a whorl wind of change. The town is a little different too, a biker gang has moved in. Darci is about to have a birthday and her favourite cousin from California is coming for a visit. Soon enough Darci’s cousin is under arrest for killing one of the bikers. Darci is desperate for help to protect her cousin, and Darci looks to Ophelia for that help. Ophelia starts to do a little checking around, and bumps into one of the bikers who spies some of her research. With at least one of the bikers threatening her and her family, she tries to be more careful. With theories and visions dancing like sugar plumes in her head, Ophelia just can’t wrap her heard around it. The bikers are using extortion on the local businesses. One business, the local paper, is burned down. Seems that the bikers don’t agree with the paper’s freedom of speech. Book four and it just keeps getting better. I really liked a reference to Jo Dereske (the writer) I have been reading her books for years; they too are about a librarian. I was laughing out loud. I find that the humour in these books is great throughout. This is just a great series!
