Jordan gets word of a body in a house in her old neighborhood, which she used to be scared to go near as a kid. After she and Nigel go to the house they find not only the dead woman, Lois McPhearson, but also the skeletal remains of her husband. Nigel and Jordan believe that Lois may have killed her husband. When Jordan examines the body she begins to think that the wife didn't kill her husband and someone else did. Jordan and Nigel learn that the husband, Judge Leland McPhearson, prosecuted a convicted murderer and that there were other dark secrets the old house concealed.
