Leocadia arrives home from school to find her mom’s body. Unaware that the killer still lingers, she rushes to her mother’s side, only to be grabbed from behind. And everything fades to black.
Leo has been battling personal demons after a year of retrograde amnesia. She’s been having vivid dreams of that day. And her dreams are getting worse—she’s starting to remember. Two more bodies are discovered and they are oddly linked to her mom’s unsolved homicide.
Leo befriends her new neighbor. He’s eager to visit Star Hallow’s notorious haunted mansion. It’s located on a deserted cul-de-sac where she once lived and where her mom was murdered. But it’s the Lucien Estate, the mansion next door to her old home, where they happen upon misty ghosts, ghosts that just might help to unravel the homicides.
Will Leo’s memories send her reeling into a relapse, or will she be able to overcome her demons to find her mother’s killer – only to become the next victim?

There was a sound like water dripping and then splashing into a tinny pot. Perhaps the roof leaked? Curiosity got the best of me and I shouldered open the door. Pitch black, not a trace of light. The revolting stench heated the room. Was there a rotten animal in here? I plugged my nose to block the stench.
I guided my feet with the flashlight, but my sneakers stepped into a gooey substance. Suctioned to the floor, I pried them up; the goo looked reddish black. The cause of the stench? My paranoia reached its pinnacle. Let Henry find his own way out. I’m leaving. I turned toward the hall and the flashlight’s beam sliced through the room. I was ready to flee when I caught sight of something. I cast the light upward, toward the high ceiling.
A bristly rope had been knotted around a chandelier. My light followed the line of rope and landed on a corpse. Not animal—human.
