Embedded with scintillating suspense and quirky comedy, this romantic thriller follows the twists and turns in the life of an American journalism student, Sondra Pransky, when she is given the name and identity of the tarot card serial killer of London, from an obstinate ghost.
In the funeral of the famous British journalist Joe Strombel, his colleagues and friends recall how obstinate he was while seeking for a scoop. Meanwhile the deceased Joe discovers the identity of the tarot card serial killer of London. He immediately cheats the Reaper and appears to Sondra while she is on the stage in the middle of a magic show of the magician Sidney Waterman in London, and tells her that the murderer is the aristocrat Peter Lyman.
Sondra travels to London, drags Sid into her investigation, and tries to infiltrate Lyman's privileged world to try and find out if he truly is a psychopathic serial killer, but soon finds herself falling in love with him.
Was Joe Strombel's final scoop false? Will Sondra get her first big scoop or find true love?
