Description

Lorelei Good has a gift: she can relay messages from the afterlife, helping the bereaved speak with their departed loved ones. Of course, Lorelei's successful seances hinge on the talents of her little sister, Nixie "Nobody", who has a gift for creative dirt digging on Lorelei's desparate, and often wealthy, clientele.
