When Robert helps a young widow and her newly-arrived German grandfather haul the old man's trunks to his granddaughter's shop, he thinks he may have found a new set of friends--especially the kind train porter who helps them out. But when a red swastika is found painted on the widow's shop window, and the train porter is found dead, Robert knows that something much deeper, and much darker, is happening in his sleepy little town. Even back at Grace & Favor Mansion, where Lily and Robert live, things are falling apart. The Chief of Police has just unearthed a very, very old skeleton--right on the grounds!
