Leaving her a mysterious gift - a pair of golden earrings - the ghost disappears, setting Paloma off on a quest.

Although her death was ruled a suicide, Paloma soon discovers that many people had reasons for wanting la Rusa dead... including Paloma's own grandmother.

Nothing is ever quite as it seems...
