520 It's the end of the Nineteenth Century. San Francisco's
cobblestone streets are haunted, but Chinatown has an
unlikely protector in a young Daoist priestess named Li-
lin. Using only her martial arts training, spiritual magic,
a sword made from peachwood, and the walking, talking
spirit of a human eye, Li-lin stands alone to defend her
immigrant community from supernatural threats. But when
the body of a young girl is brought to the deadhouse Li-
lin oversees for a local group of gangsters, she faces her
most bewildering--and potentially dangerous--assignment
yet. The nine-year-old has died from
suffocation...specifically by flowers growing out of her
nose and mouth. Li-lin suspects Gong Tau, a dirty and
primitive form of dark magic. But who is behind the spell,
and why, will take her on a perilous journey deep into a
dangerous world of ghosts and spirits.
