Robert Castle should not be alive. When his wife Claire was murdered almost a year ago, Robert has no memory of his whereabouts on the night of her death or how he escaped the same fate himself. Narrowly cleared of suspicion for Claire’s murder and still reeling from her loss, Robert finds refuge in his floating house on the docks and the companionship of Piper, a spirited barista who sees another side to his sad tale. But Robert is no ordinary grieving widower; he has made a risky deal with Death itself to bring his wife back to life – he just doesn’t know it.
As a string of murders plague Seattle, Robert finds himself again under the watchful eye of Alex Shaw, the detective who investigated Claire’s murder and believes Robert escaped justice. Caught between a budding relationship with Piper and his obsession with Claire’s cold case, Alex is willing to risk it all to connect Robert with the killings.
Life and death collide as Robert navigates his new powers and the consequences they bring. The deceased seem drawn to him like moths to a flame, but Robert’s end goal remains the same – to bring back his dead wife and clear his name. But if you make a deal with Death, prepare to pay the price.
