Ghosts in Quicksilver

‘Ghosts in Quicksilver’ is an urban fantasy detective noir following 17-year-old Jamal as she tries to solve the first case she’s ever been offered – a missing-persons case that she already knows is a murder mystery. It soon spins out of her control and out of her hands, as it’s made abundantly clear that not only is she not the only freak in Ottawa – she’s far from the biggest or the baddest.
