Her uncle is coordinating an effort to bring the Northern Pacific Railway to their town and has eyes on a 900-acre property next to his mansion to be used as the depot,
Adele, given a room in a tower of her uncle’s manor, becomes curious when she witnesses a strange phenomenon in the abandoned ruins on the other side of the wrought-iron fence.
Grai Madison, a young architect, is about to inherit his grandfather’s estate when he is brutally stabbed and robbed.

What happens when Adele seeks to satisfy her curiosity and wanders into the neighbor’s garden?
