Ellie and Henry are young, rich, in love, and engaged. In the carefree days before marriage and new responsibility, Ellie is happy to accept hereccentric Aunt Kate's request that shehouse-sit atKate's palatial estate in Burton, Virginia. With its nearly invisible housekeepers and plethora of pets, Ellie feels right at home. Conventional Henry, however, finds Aunt Kate and her lifestyle a little hard to take, and so he departs. After he leaves, Ellie realizes that there are disturbing secrets about the local aristocracy buried in a dusty old book she has carried into the mansion—some thatextend to her own family.

Suddenly, Ellie's interest in the past is attracting a slew of unwelcome guests—some of them living and some, perhaps, not. Unwittingly, she has aroused a terrible vengeance that is now aimed at her.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“No one else can write the kind of mystery Ms. Peters is so adept at producing.” Dallas Morning News
“There’s mirth as well as mayhem in Peters’ mysteries, and Grace Conlin reads with a mischievousness…Her arch delivery reinforces Peters’ descriptions of unlikable people, Ellie’s stuffed-shirt fiancé in particular, but her voice warms when impersonating Ellie’s eccentric aunt or Ellie herself.” AudioFile
