Trapeze artist Amalie Vaughn moved to Burning Cove to reinvent herself, but things are not going well. After spending her inheritance on a mansion with the intention of turning it into a bed-and-breakfast, she learns too late that the property is said to be cursed. And when her first guest, Dr. Norman Pickwell, is found murdered, rumours about the curse grow even louder . . .

Meanwhile, infamous gangster Matthias Jones is on the trail of a groundbreaking cipher machine. He suspects that Pickwell stole the device and planned to sell it.
