Summary

Hailed by Agatha Christie as “the king of the art of misdirection,” John Dickson Carr draws readers into a thrilling tale of a family’s hunt for an inheritance hidden in a haunted New Orleans mansion

Before he became a commodore in the Confederate Navy, Serena Hobart’s grandfather was a treasure hunter who combed the bottom of the sea in search of Spanish gold. In 1927, after her father dies, Serena wants nothing more than to be rid of Delys Hall, the commodore’s rambling old New Orleans mansion, which has been nicknamed “Deadly Hall” because some pretty awful things have occurred there, including murder. When her relatives hear rumors that there may be gold hidden in the old house, they will stop at nothing to keep it in the family.

Serena’s childhood friend Jeff Caldwell senses that Serena is in danger and wants to protect her. But there are many dark corners in Deadly Hall, maybe even ghosts, and certainly relatives who can dream up a thousand ways to kill.
