Reports of haunted happenings at
the newly renovated Fernhaven Hotel, a secluded resort in the Cascade Mountains, emerge during the investigation of a rape-murder case. Officers Carrie Fransen
and her new partner Rich McFarland
try to separate fact from urban legend
in Joanna Wayne's The Amulet (3). In the meantime, Carrie's ex-partner Bart Finnegan pursues the case from inside the hotel. While the emerging relationship between Carrie and Rich is interesting, the real draw is the refurbished grand hotel and its peculiar life force.
