Every family has a few skeletons in its closet. But the Cain family has a ghost in theirs, and it's trying to murder the rich and famous Bart Cain. After three attempts on his life, and three phone calls from a woman who is supposed to be dead, the family is desperate enough to call in an exorcist. What they get is Bishop Blackie Ryan, who only believes in spirits of the holy sort. He learns that the ghostly suspect, Mary Anne Haggerty, disappeared in 1947 -- after going to the senior prom with Bart Cain. Now Blackie is raising more than the dead: He's raising some very deadly questions . . .
