Summary, etc.:
"Charlotte, Anne, and Emily Brontë thought their detecting days were behind them, but a terrifying new discovery draws them into a devlish new mystery. Haworth Parsonage, February 1846: It's been six months since the case of the vanished bride, and the Brontë sisters- Anne, Emily, and Charlotte-have received a steady dribble of inquiries made to Bell Brothers and Company solicitors, but nothing to really thrill them. Having found a publisher for their poems, they turn their attention toward writing a full-length novel, deciding to put their covert careers as detectors behind them. But on a bitterly cold February evening their housekeeper Tabby tells them of a grim discovery at Scar Top House, an old farmhouse belonging to the Bradshaw family, positioned at the very top of the moor. The old home is being enlarged to meet the newly enriched family's elevated status and a set of bones has been found bricked up in a chimney breast. Tabby says it's bad doings, and dark omens for all of them. The rattled housekeeper gives them a warning, telling the sisters of a chilling rumour attached to the family. The villagers believe that, on the verge of bankruptcy, Clifton Bradshaw sold his soul to the devil in return for great riches. Does this have anything to do with the bones found in the Bradshaw house? Anne, Emily, and Charlotte soon learn that true evil has set a murderous trap and they've been lured right into it"-- Provided by publisher.
