A Philadelphia mansion plays host to uninvited death
1777: In the throes of the Revolutionary War, Landon Mansion
is commandeered by British Lord "Butcher" Bedford. He stabs
Lucy Tarleton-who spurned his king and his love-leaving her
to die in her father's arms.
Now: After the day's final tour, docent Allison Leigh makes
her rounds while locking up...and finds a colleague slumped
over Bedford's desk, impaled on his own replica bayonet.
Resident ghosts may be the stock-in-trade of stately
Philadelphia homes, but Allison-a noted historian-is
indignant at the prospect of "ghost hunters" investigating
this apparent murder.
Agent Tyler Montague knows his hauntings and his history.
But while Allison is skeptical of the newcomer, a second
mysterious murder occurs. Has "Butcher" Bedford resurfaced?
Or is there another malevolent force at work in Landon
Mansion? Wary, yet deeply attracted, Allison has to trust in
Tyler and work with him to discover just what uninvited
guest-dead or alive-has taken over the house. Or their lives
could become history!
