Since childhood Nyssa Wheeler has lived with her stepsister Gwen in a small house in Fulham, London.

Nyssa possesses the ability of a psychic empath and can read people’s emotions through touch. This ‘gift’ has enabled her to pursue the work of a private investigator.

In the year 1904, she decides to take the position of companion to the Dowager Lady Kirby, living at Kirby House near Bodmin in Cornwall. Here she meets the dowager’s two sons, Sir Howel, the sixth baronet and Captain Daveth Kirby, newly home from fighting the Boers in South Africa.

Although seeking a quieter life, Nyssa is drawn into the mystery of the disappearance of Lady Marie Kirby, Sir Howel’s new wife. Her investigation involves her in the legend of the Beast of Bodmin Moor, a creature that supposedly prowls the moor.

As the deaths mount up, Nyssa and Daveth must find the murderer before Nyssa, herself, becomes the next victim.
