About the book

'A sharp and bittersweet story of past and future, ghosts and gods and family, that kept me turning pages into the dark hours of the night' Naomi Novik, author of Uprooted

mischievous Malaysian-set novel is an adventure featuring family, ghosts and local gods - from Hugo Award winning novelist Zen Cho.

Her grandmother may be dead, but she's not done with life . . . yet.

As Jessamyn packs for Malaysia, its not a good time to start hearing a bossy voice in her head. Broke, jobless and just graduated, shes abandoning America to return home. But she last saw Malaysia as a toddler and is completely unprepared for its ghosts, gods and her eccentric familys shenanigans.

Jess soon learns her voice belongs to Ah Ma, her late grandmother. She worshipped the Black Water Sister, a local deity. And when a business magnate dared to offend her goddess, Ah Ma swore revenge. Now shes decided Jess will help, whether she wants to or not.

As Ah Ma blackmails Jess into compliance, Jess fights to retain control. But her irrepressible relative isnt going to let a little thing like death stop her, when she can simply borrow Jesss body to make mischief. As Jess is drawn ever deeper into a world of peril and family secrets, getting a job becomes the least of her worries.
