Summary

Summary

San Francisco vintage clothing store owner Lily Ivory must put her more magical abilities to good use in this mystery in the New York Times bestselling Witchcraft series.

When some students get spooked at the San Francisco School of Fine Arts, Lily Ivory is called in to search for possible paranormal activity. In exchange for her help, she's been promised a trunk full of Victorian era clothes recently discovered in a school storage closet.

What she finds at the foot of the stairs leading to the bell tower is a body--a wealthy patron of the school who has been murdered. She uses her sleuthing skills in between running the store and seeing her new boyfriend, Max, a "mythbuster" uncomfortable with her witchcraft. Soon Lily senses something from the school's vintage clothes. But it's not the smell of mothballs--it's the unmistakable aura of evil intent...
