A summary of the plot may make its main idea seem a bit trite. However, Asthana executes the concept in subtle and unexpected ways...Overall, the author manages to deftly mix aspects of suspenseful film noir, chick lit, and Hollywood nostalgia in this well-paced, concise tale.

Synopsis

What if the clothes you wore carried ghostly fragments of your soul, and somehow those fragments got transferred to one who wore those clothes next?
A young woman comes to Hollywood to escape her past. She finds work in a vintage clothing store that sells clothes used in the movies. She discovers a way to transfer human character through these vintage clothes, and she uses this ability to seek love, identity and adventure. One day she wears clothes her deceased mother used to wear and uncovers secrets that were better left undisturbed.

"Imagine if clothing maintained the energy of those who wore it, and that energy could be transferred to someone else wearing the garment. That’s the premise behind this highly readable novel about love, sex, Hollywood, and transference...The story should delight classic movie fans and those seeking a magical realism mystery set in Hollywood."
