They say a watched pot never boils, but what about a watched criminal?
If you ask her, Katherine Germaine will tell you that she never killed anyone, anyway, so it doesn't matter. She also never lived outside the city of paranormal bliss, New Rochester, or befriended local rabble rouser, Nate Reis. As proof of her innocence, Katherine cites her job--professional paranormal agent, working for the city’s most vigilant do-gooder, the always cryptic and never photographed Blain. She never mentions that behind the name, Blain happens to be a Hispanic midget with a heavy belief in karma. Nor that as an agent, she is paid to fix disasters and see that criminals get their just reward while working alongside some of the city’s most ill reputed residents.
Despite the best efforts of her nervous empathic partner Noah and the memory-stealing nephew of former social delinquent Nate Reis, Katherine manages to worm her way into theater owner Arabella Dempsey’s worst nightmare: a cursed production. Under contract for a sizeable fee, and under the constant watch of Nicholas, the man whose brother she is said to have killed, Katherine attempts to find out what is really going on in the theater where actors are disappearing and the props seem to come to life. Is there murder afoot, or is Arabella’s production just cursed?
This is an interesting idea but you're drowning in explanation and set up. Get the formula stick and bop yourself on the head with it. More than once if need be. This is a fun idea ...rescue it.
