Katie is an attorney and now a partner in a highly recognized law firm. She has a very bad drinking habit which she refuses to acknowledge and thinks of it as something she can control as and when she wishes. It is far from so. Katie is alcoholic and refuses to admit it. When a case of hers goes drastically wrong, she is shown up in front of the whole legal fraternity as a joke. On top of that her rejection by someone she is attracted to shoves her over the edge and professionally and personally Katie is a goner.
Katie lost her parents in a tragic car accident in the Caribbean and this has been always at the back of her mind that she should go visit the place where her parents died. She from the very onset felt suspicious of her parents death - and now feels that the time is right to go and see what she can come up with.
Katie's adventures in St. Marcos are too over the top to be true but it does happen to her. No sooner she starts investigating her parents death, trouble seems to follow her. She falls in love with a derelict house which has a resident "jumbie" local parlance for a spirit that seems to look out for Katie and protects her, her best friend on the island is arrested for murder, and the man who is investigating her parents death - the only investigator on the island seems to be in cahoots with everyone against Katie and is determined to get rid of her following up on her parents death.
