Molly Travers, a young woman living in San Francisco, discovers that she is the descendant of a family of vaudeville magicians, who in the nineteenth century performed real magic with a group of occultists known as the Order of the Labyrinth. As Molly investigates her past, richer and deeper magic enters her life. First she travels to England, where the trail leads her to an estate once owned by a rich, eccentric widow who believed in the supernatural and had her own personal medium - Molly's great-grandmother. Underneath the house, in the enormous cellar, the widow's fortune was spent constructing a labyrinth to Molly's great-grandmother's specifications. Beneath the house the labyrinth awaits, seemingly untouched by the hundred years that have passed since it was built. Molly enters its passages and there everything changes. The labyrinth, and the secrets it contains, will bring Molly face-to-face with magic, mystery, and murder, changing her life forever.
