Estes Park, Colorado: a place of history and serenity. With classic saloons, Wild West lodges, and the infamous Stanley Hotel, Estes Park is a shining example of the days of old.
But it wasn’t always so ideal. One hundred and fifty years ago, pioneer Nathan Kendall and his wife were murdered, leaving an infant son behind. The crime was never solved.
Now, historian Scarlet Barlow has moved to Estes Park to work in a small museum attached to a popular bed & breakfast, which is nestled on the side of the Rocky Mountains.
It’s also the same building the Kendalls were murdered in, decades before.
After divorcing her FBI agent husband Diego McCullough, Scarlet needs a new start. For Diego it’s a new start as well. He’s just joined a “Krewe of Hunters,” a unit dealing with “unusual” situations.
When photos of the dead begin to show up on Scarlet’s camera, she wonders if something surrounds the B&B other than lovely landscape and hiking trails. Once the police begin to suspect her of a mysterious crime—and the historic statues in the museum begin moving on their own—she calls for Diego and the Krewe to help. Diego takes on the bizarre, hundred-year old murder case—and in the process, hopes to reunite with the woman he never stopped loving.

Filled with spine-tingling moments of the paranormal, intriguing mystery, and a dash of romance, Graham has brought a non-stop, heart-pounding story to the popular series.
