FROM THE BOOK JACKET: Its Halloween night in Cedar Valley. During the towns annual festival, Detective Gemma Monroe takes a break from trick or treating with her family to visit an old family friend, retired Judge Caleb Montgomery, at his law office. To Gemmas surprise, Caleb seems worried—haunted, even—and confides in her that hes been receiving anonymous threats. Shortly after, as Gemma strolls back to her car, an explosion at Calebs office shatters the night.
Reeling from the shock, Gemma and her team begin eliminating suspects and motives, but more keep appearing in their place, and soon another man is killed. Her investigation takes her from a chilling encounter with a convicted murderer at the Belle Vista Penitentiary, to the gilded rooms of the renovated Shotgun Playhouse, where Shakespeares cursed play Macbeth is set to open in a few weeks.
