An'gel and Dickce Ducote are in Natchez, Mississippi, at the request of Mary Turner Catlin, an old friend's granddaughter. Mary and her husband live in a beautiful antebellum home where odd things have been happening for years. The French Room has become the focal point for spooky sensations. The Ducotes suspect the goings-on are caused by the living. And when a relative of the Catlins is found dead in the room, An'gel and Dickce must sift through a haunted family history to catch a killer.
