(From the publisher):
For thirty years there has been peace beside the waters of Lake Solaria except in the rambling mansion where Myrtle Hollenback paced up and down like a mad woman, waiting for the return of her children.
But Myrtle's waiting is soon over: one night she is found hanging from her daughter's skipping rope. Everyone belives Myrtle's death to be a routine suicide; everyone that is, apart from Cassie Larchmount, the ten-year-old child who witnessed Myrtles's death, and Robert Landers, an investigating police officer who hears from Cassie how a dark shadow stood by Myrtle's side that fearful night.
At the same time, Nicole Morgan comes into Cassie's life. Dark-haired, malevolent, dressed in quaint old-fashined clothes popular decades before, Nicole seems bent on luring the other children into Myrtle's haunted mansion. The fabulous playroom they discover conceals untold horrors, while outside the terror that has lain quietly on the lake bed for thirty years rises slowly towards them. Only Landers can save them before that evil kills them all.
