The Diary of Cord House
Karen Shelby relates The Diary of Cord House in her own words. The untimely death of her husband, Tony, and the inheritance of a house in the Midwest, prompts her move to Fort Dodge, Iowa.
Attorney Grant Howard is adamant that she sell Cord House. Karen is just as determined to remodel and move into the house. Her motive is to write a book about the family that owned and lived in Cord House.
Jane Grady, Tony's former co-worker, suddenly appears in Fort Dodge to stay with Karen. She is writing an autobiography about a local gentlemen no one seems to know. A snowstorm, and invitations that aren’t sent put a damper on a house warming. With a semi-retired doctor and Grant the only guests, the party turns into a story telling venture about Cord House.
Footsteps in the attic, strange voices and missing paintings add to the mystery. Does the discovery of a diary make a connection between the 1920 murders of the house's occupants and two present day murders? Will she have the chance to prove it before she herself is arrested or worse, a victim of the murderer?
