Tex Murphy wakes up – disoriented and head pounding – on the fire escape outside his office atop the Ritz Hotel. Another typical morning for the last of the old-school detectives. Except it isn’t. What starts out as the worst hangover in history becomes a baffling nightmare: something – or someone – has erased Tex’s memory of the past seven years. Motivated by lost love, revenge and the world’s strongest coffee blend, Tex must retrace his own steps into a maze of unsolved murders, hidden agendas and lost technologies of Nikola Tesla. Only by solving the mysteries of his past can Tex hope to regain his memory in time to restore what’s been lost…and stop a terrifying future.
Jess Silloway's dreams are haunted by a ghostly figure, always gesturing to be followed. Clues lead to a bed & breakfast on the coast of Maine – the lone surviving structure of a small town mysteriously destroyed eighty years ago...and now one of the most haunted places on earth.
Ghost hunters have come for an annual Halloween Night investigation, but it's Jess who glimpses the "other side." But why her? She doesn't know the woman in her dreams and, until now, she had no idea Beacon Bay even existed. She has no connection here, no history. And then...something starts to feel...familiar...
The last thing Jess Silloway can recall is meeting her boyfriend, Daniel, for dinner on the eve of her thirtieth birthday. The next morning, she'll fly to the Florida Keys to celebrate her birthday with her parents aboard her father's yacht. Everything in Jess's life is good...on track.
Except...something feels different. Maybe it's just her impending birthday – some kind of mini-midlife crisis. Or maybe it's something else...
Jess suddenly finds herself in a room with a man she's never seen before, who tells her that something has happened...something that has caused her to block out the events of the past days or weeks since her last memory. The man is there, he says, to help Jess remember.
