Homer Vincent lives in the beautiful house called Greatlarch in New England, with his wife and niece. Though outwardly the family appear to have a charmed life, the house is haunted by an ancient legend. When a harp sounds in the copse known as Spooky Hollow, it is said that a violent death will soon follow. The prophecy comes true when Homer’s wife is found murdered in a locked room – but who is to blame for her violent death? Will detective Fleming Stone be able to solve the case? A classic whodunnit from the popular and prolific mystery author Carolyn Wells.
