Can you fall for a dead dude? That's what the writer Julia Crawley wants to know as she falls for the handsome specter Knight at the Jersey shore's most haunted home, Treason House. Together they deal with unruly ghosts, especially a 17th Century pirate who wants to get rid of Julia, her strange psychic family, and the expose she writes about Knight for a local paper. The shocking end leads into the second book of the series, Spirited.
