When young writer Jeff was summoned back to his native city New Orleans from Paris, he was told hidden gold and a suspicious death 17 years ago in the Deadly Hall, where he spent his childhood. While they searched for the gold in the Hall, his hostess died under very similar circumstances. Are both murders or just accidents? Jeff's uncle, local attorney Gil, unraveled the mystery and found the hidden gold. Although New Orleans is a very unlikely stage for murder, the hundreds' year old hall, which was moved from England, makes up the Carr's typical ghostly atmosphere.
