Synopsis from publisher for soft cover edition:

The moody miniseries by award-winning writer Jeph Loeb (BATMAN: HUSH, Hulk, Ultimatum) with art by Chris Bachalo (DEATH: THE HIGH COST OF LIVING) and Art Thibert (TRINITY) is available once more in this new printing of a Vertigo classic, featuring a section of sketches by Bachalo.

The setting is Manhattan, where the mysterious Amanda Collins moves through the troubled lives of ordinary people armed with little more than a blank white business card and a strange, supernatural presence. She’s giving them the chance to change their lives, but the choice they make will depend entirely on the forces that already exist in their hearts. Amanda herself is a mesmerizing presence and, as she works modern magic with the help of a colorful — if not entirely loyal — coterie of followers, another side of her begins to emerge: one that is troubled, powerful and possibly centuries old. At the crossroads of the supernatural and the very real, this book spins bold, provocative tales of sin, magic and redemption.
