SEE OUR REVIEW
When Steve buys the historic Akron Hotel for a steal, he considers himself lucky. To own an iconic property and run his own bar and restaurant at such a young age—it’s a dream come true. Little does he know that the hotel is haunted, and when Wendy Kulbrick—one of the servers—is found murdered on the third floor of the hotel, Steve’s dream turns into a nightmare.
The windows are sealed, there are no signs of forced entry,
and there’s no murder weapon in sight. Two people have keys to the only two doors to the stairway—Steve and his restaurant manager—and both have strong alibis. But as Sergeant Mike O’Brien interviews hotel employees, he realizes that everyone had a motive to kill Wendy.
Blackmail, burglary, a love affair, and other secrets are revealed as O’Brien takes an unusual approach to unraveling this locked-room murder mystery: seeking the help of Molly McCutcheon’s ghost, which haunts the hotel. Legend has it she’s protecting something entrusted to her by a US president for safekeeping.
When an investigative séance is held, surprising revelations come to light.
