Hang out in a lamp? Not this jinni.
Retired professor Blythe Golightly likes to investigate all things spooky. People come to her for help ridding themselves of ghosts, demons, and poltergeists—what Blythe’s long-gone, moonshiner granddaddy, back home in North Carolina, called “haints.”
When Blythe’s friend Poppy says her teenage granddaughter, Najia, is haunted by a jinni, Blythe jumps at the chance to help. The jinni is controlled by the girl’s Saudi father—a billionaire sheikh who kidnapped Najia to Saudi Arabia after his divorce from Poppy’s daughter, Dakota, a Vail Ski Resort heiress.
The sheikh has cut teenage Najia off from any contact with her American family. In a sting operation, Blythe helps Judd, a child recovery contractor, bring Najia home to Colorado.
Then the sheikh is murdered in Dakota’s Vail mansion—while Judd is there. The police suspect Dakota and Judd of conspiring to kill the sheikh for $11.5 million dollars’ worth of life insurance. When Najia begs Blythe to help prove her mother innocent and banish the jinni, Blythe finds herself in over her head!
