While her career is wrapped with uncertainties, her personal life is compromised without her knowing it. Her fiancé Doug has left town and she doesn’t know why. But her mind is set to an even more baffling mystery when some strangers and a ghost begin to haunt the Big House, while death stalks Spindleburne gardens. Resolving to get some help, she turns to Wilson Laird, an ex-FBI and a recent Tilliman employee, for help in determining what lies at the root of spectral presences. In the quest for the truth, Deena discovers multiple revelations promise exciting action.

Packed with unconventional twists and erratic turns, The Spindleburne Spectre follows Deena as she sets on an adventure where deceit, schemes, and violence are the recipe of the game.
