In the summer of 2002, whilst out on the beach in a coastal town, an eleven year-old girl from Knightsbridge, Lillian Palmer - the daughter of an aristocrat - meets an enigmatic but eccentric boy, who answers to the nickname ‘Tarot’. His name is really Graham Little, the son of an aspiring clairvoyant and palmist, Francesca, who raised him by herself when her husband walked out on her. Graham is, like Lillian, staying at the same caravan park. Whilst they are chatting, a small rock plummets onto the sand, which is coated in a strange substance, which they get on their skin, which results in them starting to hear one another's thoughts. Ten years later, Graham has carved out a career as a stage magician after three unfulfilling years in the police force, whilst Lillian Palmer is a successful novelist, a career she threw herself into following the death of her parents when she was nineteen. The two of them still can intercept each other's thoughts, but their mental powers have grown over time, allowing them to read the minds of others, move objects with their thoughts and occasionally influence, if they choose to, the actions of others. When evidence comes to light that the demise of her parents and the death of Graham's assistant on stage were no accidents, the two of them team up with her literary agent, Sam Maxstead, to uncover the truth, and subsequently find themselves up against an organisation more dangerous and more powerful than the three of them could have imagined.
