One dark night an eccentric resident in Matthew's small town is beaten to death…
Young family physician Matthew Paine is called to the scene of the murder. Having signed on as a medical consultant with the police department, he always honors his commitments.
Three boys found the body when one of them tripped over his feet.
Matthew is certain the boys know more than they're saying and he challenges their perception that the odd victim was a specter. That's difficult because much of the town believes that the iconic resident's historic family home is haunted. Nobody thought he would ever hurt anyone, though, so who would want to kill him?
Is there still a killer lurking in the small town of Peak?
Matthew determines to find out and restore the safety of the town.
Can he find a key to unlocking the case that the police can't?
