Description from Dust Jacket:
Somewhere in the dark labyrinthine halls of Old House a terrible, nameless corruption lurked. Victoria Digby could feel it growing all around her, threatening and ugly – until suddenly she was overwhelmed by the realization of what it was. A few hours later, she met violent death beneath the wheels of a train.
Her young cousin, Kate, suspecting that Victoria’s death was not an accident, applied for her job as a tourist guide through the historic old mansion. Kate soon came to know its owners, the Staveling family – handsome, debonair Robert; his cool blonde wife, Edith; and their nephew, a disturbed boy who lived in his own fantasy world.
But as Kate was drawn deeper into the tangled, mysterious affairs of the Staveling family, the shadow of her own doom was lengthening in the halls of Old House.
