A reunion weekend for estranged sisters Connie and Regan take a mysterious turn when they find the host of Hickory Dickory Inn murdered! With an early snowstorm raging outside and the phone line deliberately cut, it appears the killer is among those guests at the inn - strangely enough, each guest seems to be hiding something! Could the murderer be the victim's surprisingly unsentimental and rude sister Essie, who has a penchant for writing horror stories and is the co-owner of the inn? How about Clark or Keely Curtis - a pair of lovebirds who must be hiding something beneath that sickly-sweet façade? What's the story behind Sarah Dane, a lonely and weird young woman? Could she be angry and passionate enough to perhaps kill, especially since she doesn't seem to be who she is? Connie and Regan can't even overlook each other as a potential suspect! After all, it's been six years since they've seen each other. Taking over as amateur sleuth with the few clues that lead nowhere, Connie suggests that -since Regan has had experience dabbling in the occult-her sister should hold a séance. Perhaps the victim himself will point a ghostly finger at the real killer! This light-hearted murder mystery/comedy has intriguing characters and a plot that will keep you guessing until the end when the curtain drops!
