Realizing that Malfour House will not let her leave until she unravels the clues to the horrifying murders long buried in its past, Brenda renews her career as a private investigator. And if that wasn't enough of a puzzle to solve, there is a mysterious intruder trying to chase her and Tina out of Malfour House.

Brenda Strange is back. A Private Investigator in Tampa, Florida, Brenda isn't your ordinary private eye. This time, she's got the living and the dead wanting a piece of the action. Proving that a death ruled as an accidental drowning was actually murder gets a bit more complicated than Brenda Strange bargained for. It's Christmas time in Florida but the heat's up full blast. Brenda is investigating the death of Paula Drakes, a local businesswoman and a leader in the lesbian community. When one of Brenda's suspects, Joan Davis, ends up dead, the path of her investigation puts her face to face with not one, but two possible killers -- one diagnosed with Multiple Personality Disorder and violent enough to commit murder. Along the way, her job becomes more bizarre when her suspects start getting spooked by a fishy apparition that leaves wet footprints behind. Brenda has to catch up with the killers before something that goes bump in the night bumps them off. And if this problem isn't enough, Brenda has to patch up the relationship with her mother and reconcile with her lover...
