Investigating her family history, Molly slips into a world of magic
Backstage at a vaudeville in Oakland, California, a reporter sits down for an interview with Callan Allalie, patriarch of a family of traveling magicians. As the journalist asks his questions, Callan's sisters dazzle him with tricks too delicate for the stage. The night quickly whirls out of control as all manner of untold magic warps the writer's mind, and the next morning, he can't be sure that he witnessed it at all.
Sixty years later, a private detective confronts Molly, the last descendent of the Allalie clan, to ask questions about one of Callan's sisters, who seemed to vanish after the performance in Oakland. As Molly delves into the mysteries of the Allalies, she discovers a connection to a shadowy organization of nineteenth-century mystics—and a family secret that will change the way she looks at the world forever.
