Ellie and Henry are young, rich, in love, and engaged. In the carefree days before marriage and new responsibility, Ellie is happy to accept her eccentric Aunt Kate’s request that she house-sit at Kate’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 that extend 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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.”

    " Enjoyable, but not my favorite Peters. Ellie goes to house sit for her Aunt and is visited by ghosts. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Lizpeveto | 2/2/2014

    " Well, it was ok and not what I was expecting from the author. I agree w/ most all the reviews, parts of the plot were unique, some of the details and time frame were boring; but enough curiosity to keep me reading to the end. I like the Peabody series best and am spoiled by having read all of them before this book. "

    " I enjoyed it up until the ending. I thought the end was a bit of a cop out. "
