Charlotte’s mother, Caroline—travels with her young husband, Joshua Fielding, and his theatrical troupe to Whitby, the Yorkshire fishing village where Dracula the vampire first touched English soil in the sensational novel named after him. Joshua has arranged to produce a stage adaptation of Dracula by the daughter of Whitby millionaire Charles Netheridge during the Christmas holiday, but after the disastrous first read-through of her amateurish script, only the fact that the company is depending on Netheridge’s financial backing for their spring tour keeps them at work.

As tempers flare and wind and snow swirl around Netheridge’s lonely hilltop mansion, a black-cloaked stranger emerges from the storm—an eerily opportune arrival, for this enigmatic figure, one Anton Ballin, turns out to be a theatrical genius. At the same time, a brooding evil makes itself felt. Instead of the theatrical triumph that Netheridge desired for his daughter, there is murder—shocking and terrifying.

Claire O’Toole’s mother, Alana, went missing when her daughters were just teenagers. Then Claire’s younger sister was confined to a wheelchair. And more recently her husband, David, died in a freak accident — after launching his own investigation into Alana’s disappearance. It seems odd that so much could happen to one family, especially in Pineview, Montana, where nothing ever happens to anyone.

Is Alana dead? Claire’s determined to find out, even if the culprit is the stepfather who’s been so good to her. And her former boyfriend, Isaac Morgan, wants to help. Although their relationship didn’t end well, he still has feelings for Claire. But it isn’t until he starts to suspect that David’s death wasn’t an accident that he’s drawn back into her life.

Together, they dig for answers to the questions that have haunted Pineview for fourteen years. But as they soon discover, someone’s prepared to kill so those answers won’t be found. . .
