When thirteen-year-old Mallory Gilmartin sees a light in the top window of the deserted old mansion on Dark Hollow Hill, she is convinced it is connected to a young girl who mysteriously disappeared from there some fifty years earlier.
Plagued by nightmares and an eerie voice that calls to her for help, Mallory must find out who is so desperate to buy the worthless old house. In a race against time, she is soon caught up in a devious plot involving the Marlatt family and their strange past.
