Publisher's summary[]


German Edition, literal translation: The Devil Woman of Collinwood

When the jury of which Roger Collins is chairman find Harriet Barnes guilty of murder, she swears vengeance on the entire Collins family, then kills herself.

Soon Celia Dalton, a guest at Collinwood, starts suffering strange spells. Each time she does, someone at Collinwood is violently attacked. Has Harriet Barnes taken over her spirit, making the innocent girl a blood-thirsty killer? Can Barnabas and Quentin save Celia --- and the Collins family -- from this menace out of the crypt?


Carolyn's friend Celia Dalton visits Collinwood with her family and promptly begins suffering fainting spells during which others are violently attacked. Carolyn wonders if her friend may be possessed by the spirit of a murderer who recently cursed the Collins family before committing suicide.
