Alison Hart is a medium by trade: dead people talk to her. With her cynical assistant and business partner, the slender, flint-hearted Colette, Alison travels the clubs and psychic fairs of London's orbital road, passing the messages of the dead. But behind Alison's plump, smiling public persona is a tormented woman. When Colette persuades her to delve into her past, Alison is haunted by the unpleasant thugs and petty criminals she grew up with who infiltrate her house, body and soul. CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE AND ADULT THEMES.
