Publisher's summary Edit

Barnabas predicts trouble for Collinwood when Nicholas Freeze, in whose antique shop Carolyn Stoddard works, discovers a centuries-old potion that promises eternal youth. Soon after, Mr. Freeze's daughter Hazel, tricked into taking the serum, dies. Carolyn is grief-stricken over her friend's death. Barnabas insists she stay on at the shop to watch Nicholas Freeze and his associates, one of whom Carolyn suspects is Quentin Collins, back at Collinwood in a disguise.

Then Carolyn sees Hazel's ghost.

She interprets this as a warning that Mr. Freeze has marked her for his next victim. Barnabas still refuses to let her quit.

Has Barnabas made a fatal mistake by deliberately endangering Carolyn's life? Or will his plan avenge Hazel's murder and put her spirit to rest?

Synopsis Edit

Carolyn becomes marked for murder when the owner of an antique shop where she works discovers what he believes is a serum providing eternal youth. After his daughter tries the serum and dies, her ghost haunts Carolyn. Barnabas insists that Carolyn stay on the job long enough to gather evidence that her boss is a murderer.
