Summary "When, in 1922, he is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, the count is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin.

Despite her stroke of luck, Melanie can't deny that spirits--both malevolent and benign--have started to appear to her again. One is shrouded from sight, appearing whenever Jayne is near. Another arrives when an old cistern is discovered in her backyard on Tradd Street. Melanie knows nothing good can come from unearthing the past. But some secrets refuse to stay buried..."--
