Who will prevail — the woman or the ghost?

For five years Edie has worked for the Elysian Society, a secretive organisation that provides a very specialised service: its clients come to reconnect with their dead loved ones by channelling them through living 'Bodies'. Edie is one such Body, perhaps the best in the team, renowned for her professionalism and discretion.

But everything changes when Patrick, a distraught husband, comes to look for traces of his drowned wife in Edie. The more time that Edie spends as the glamorous, enigmatic Sylvia, the closer she comes to falling in love with Patrick … and the more mysterious the circumstances around Sylvia's death appear.

As Edie falls under Sylvia's spell, she must discover not only the couple's darkest secrets, but her own long-buried memories and desires — before it's too late.
