Unfortunately, fairness means nothing to the evil wraith-the big, rangy ghost tomcat knows he will return. While Misto keeps an eye out for Lee's dark antagonist, he's also watching over nine-year-old Sammie Blake, his companion in a previous lifetime. Sammie is blessed with an extraordinary gift the devil covets: her dreams portend the future. Yet Misto senses there is something even more mysterious about Sammie-she has an inexplicable connection with Lee that the clever feline is determined to understand. Like Lee, Sammie has suffered from Satan's tricks: One of the devil's longtime puppets, a bad penny named Brad Falon, orchestrated a deadly robbery and framed her daddy, Morgan Blake, to take the fall. Though Morgan is behind bars, he isn't alone. He's met a new friend who knows a few tricks about outwitting evil: old con Lee Fontana, the devil's adversary. Together, they plan a wily escape to bring the real killer to justice and clear Morgan's name. All it will take is outsmarting the devil one more time. . . .
