In this tale of a Dublin where the Fair People go about their lives like everybody else (or try to), a mortal ally with the Seeing gift discovers that they're being targeted by a deadly threat of the modern world. Their only hope of survival is to raise the dead -- not in general: just one very important dead person -- and discover whether he can save a vital part of Irish life from being destroyed forever. But will the cure be worse than the disease...?
