by Braddon Mendelson

Professor Greg Waverman and his love interest, doctoral candidate Annie Talon, spend the winter in an 1820s-era cabin in Gallows Falls, Vermont, for the purpose of debunking centuries-old ghost stories connected to the property. Their skepticism dissipates, however, as embodied spirits reenact scenes right before their eyes, pulling the couple into their narratives. The Marquis de Lafayette, hero of the American Revolution, attempts to repatriate buried gold, while a romantic tryst turns deadly, and the exoneration of an executed woman hangs in the balance. Historical events intertwine with supernatural mischief, as Greg and Annie learn the truth about the house.
