"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. Will an investigative séance reveal the truth? And will those seeking answers find a long-buried treasure...or the key to finding the killer?"--publisher's description.
