Resurrected into a society only now beginning to recover from the Event that almost wiped out humanity, Lily has become a Cross-up, acquiring powers she never had before. Driven by a bewildering set of circumstances, she uses these powers for the good of the O'Quinn clan, a horse society straight out of the Old West that has, against their better judgement, taken her in.
But with few exceptions, these people are not as appreciative of her help as one might expect. Even after killing one of her "own kind" the O’Quinn’s view her with fear and suspicion. Sent before the clan elders, Lily's alternatives are banishment into a lonely, friendless world where no one trusts anybody, or death.
But Lily isn't willing to die again.

That is, if Ione doesn't beat him to it....
In 1896, there aren’t many career choices for a young lady. China Bohannon has fled one bad situation and is looking to start her life over as a strong, independent woman in the wild and woolly town of Spokane, Washington. The trouble is, convincing Gratton Doyle to take her seriously as a bookkeeper is hard enough, and when it comes to working as an investigator in the Doyle & Howe Detective Agency, it’s well-nigh impossible. But what if China is able to solve a murder case no one else wants to take on, that of a young girl found dead, her body tossed in the river? If she can avoid being the next murder victim, will Gratton hire her then? There’s only one way to find out.
