She also hears classical piano music and gunshots from no earthly source, and finds eerie messages on a wall, a notepad and even her computer.

To lay the ghosts to rest and keep the house she loves, she must re-investigate the murder of its first owner—a dashing classical pianist whose love life was far from Victorian…
