Dead of winter. Newport, Rhode Island-


It’s January and Keegan Shaw has abandoned sunny, 80 degree Florida for bitterly cold Newport, Rhode Island. Everything about the The Queen of American Resorts is bleak—particularly the spooky looking guesthouse on Gull Avenue where Keegan has been hired to look into “weird happenings.” Keegan has barely unpacked her bags when dead rats turn up on the stairs, electric lights flicker off and on for no reason, a ghost is spotted on the third floor, and the owner of the guesthouse tumbles downstairs and breaks both ankles. It’s up to Keegan to discover just how these strange and dangerous occurrences relate to a twenty year old robbery, a Greek island, and a very old murder.
