The Peacock Inn on Michigan’s famous Mackinac Island is the setting for this Stephen Moorehouse mystery. Stephen’s uncle, the famous horror movie director Phillip Kahle, selects the picturesque island as the perfect escape while he decides which beautiful scream queen gets to star in his next picture.
Exploiting his grandfather’s fame as a world-renowned spiritualist, the brooding Edward Van Dyke has turned an aging Victorian mansion into the new “must stay” spot on the island. His nightly séances have become the talk of the town, but recently they have evolved into something much darker.
When Stephen encounters a person from his girlfriend’s past, the dim corridors of the Peacock Inn turn deadly, and Stephen understands that he must solve the real meaning of the peacock prophecy.
