Amanda Vickers and Marcie Ducasse, editors at ROAMNG NEW ENGLAND MAGAZINE,return in this story to once again investigate the mysteries surrounding supernatural events in New England.
Marcie goes to the town of West Windham, Maine to check out a report about the so-called Monster of Lake Opal, a Lochness-type creature that is said to inhabit the dark depths of the lake. Amanda joins Marcie to attend a seance in the home of a man trying to contact his late wife's spirit in order to learn the identity of her murderer. The spirit tells them to look in her coffin to find a clue to her killer's identity. Amanda greets this with some skepticism until a local boy is almost murdered and the coffin is broken into. Marcie and Amanda quickly find themselves drawn into the hunt for both a strange sea creature and a murderer who appears willing to kill again in order to avoid Grave Justice.
