In the tradition of the greatest supernatural investigators, Stella Sedgewick can easily hold her own. Baby-sitting is just how she pays the bills and funds her passion: investigating and reporting on the things that lurk in the shadows, light up the sky, and go thud in the night. Her two main goals: get to the truth, no matter how dangerous or scary, and keep her baby-sat kid relatively unharmed and alive, both of which are easier said than done.
