Real estate agent Regan McHenry does it again!
She has another house to sell, with another mystery that
creeps in for her to solve.
Approaching an appointment with the owner for a possible
listing, she sees a house “like something Thomas Kincaid might have imagined
for one of his paintings,” cozy and peaceful.
However, appearances can deceive.
“She spoke to the house as if it were an animate being. ‘You’re supposed to be a derelict with a
cruel past, but you look comfortable and charming. When did that happen? When did you, the most notorious house in
Bonny Doon, take up such welcoming and benign airs?’”
After a brutal double murder twenty years earlier, with one
victim a real estate broker Regan had met, rumors continued that the house was
haunted. Those realtors, who remembered
as Regan did, gave the house the infamous name, the “Murder House.”
When Regan was able to suggest a different approach to sell
the house, the owner Josh gave her the listing as his agent.
“I know you’re the perfect agent to sell this house. I know that because I’ve also heard you’ve
been involved with murder before.”
