Augustine, Florida.Clarice has forebodings even before clapping eyes on the octagonal towers of Castle Keep. The house has a disturbing history: built in 1870 from timbers salvaged from the shipwreck of The Mourning Dove- sold to an estranged couple, the Devizes, who purchased a defunct British title and then divided the house down the middle- destined to destroy their daughter, an unfortunate bride, on her wedding day- and finally, in modern times, burglarized several times by a homeless man.When Clarice and Miss Letty, along with father and son mural painters Johnny and John Wallage (aged 90 and 70), discover the burned body of the homeless man in a dragon sculpture on an uninhabited island, they actively pursue the history of the house and its secrets.

This leads them to the plantation from which the house was moved. Here Clarice finds a skeleton in the old icehouse and slave genealogy in the tabby remnants of a slave cabin. Add to the mix a psychic, an African-American Flagler College journalism student, the Donner wedding party, two snobbish Southerners, an obstreperous Cavalier King Charles spaniel named Charles Dickens, and an obnoxious, but unwittingly helpful twelve-year-old named Beddington.When Clarice and Miss Letty find the connection between the homeless man, the skeleton in the icehouse, and another unfortunate bride aboard The Mourning Dove, they almost forfeit their own lives to the greed of a killer determined to reap the treasure hidden somewhere in Castle Keep!
