Gloria takes on a case involving stolen jewelry for winery owners in California, and notices eerie links between her latest visions and the strange events happening at the estate that hamper her investigation.

Detective Gloria Damasco has a "dark gift," an extrasensory prescience that underscores her investigations and compels her to solve numerous cases.
In Death at Solstice, Gloria is asked to help the owners of the Oro Blanco winery in California's Shenandoah Valley, the legendary Gold Country. And she can't help but wonder if the ever-more persistent visions - two pairs of dark eyes watching her, a phantom horse and rider, the sensation of being trapped underwater - might foreshadow this new case that involves the theft of a family heirloom, a pair of antique diamond and emerald earrings rumored to have belonged to Mexico's Empress Carlota.
But Gloria learns that there's more to the case than stolen jewelry. Mysterious accidents, threatening anonymous notes, the disappearance of a woman believed to be a saint and a ghost horse thought to have belonged to notorious bandit Joaquin Murrieta are some of the pieces Gloria struggles to fit together. Soon a gruesome murder sends Gloria on a fateful journey to a Witches' Sabbath to find the final pieces of the puzzle before someone else is killed.
