    Abstract

    A mysterious windfall upends Lena Haze's almost-comfortable middle-class American life. Her husband Marcus has inherited some prime Hong Kong real estate, a building in Wan Chai - the bustling, gentrifying heart of the city. It comes with a catch, though: the building must not be sold. With financing from local investors, Lena begins overseeing renovations to convert it into a premier boutique hotel. Alone in Hong Kong and a recent arrival, Lena struggles with culture shock, business obstacles, and malignant ghosts - a part of her life she thought she'd put behind her. Lena's previous experiences with the spirit world are of little help because she's dealing with Chinese ghosts this time. Different rules, rituals, and customs apply, and she has no idea what is coming.
