But he never could have anticipated the spirits he'll soon encounter. With the help of a new friend, Ella, Jon learns it's not entirely by chance that he's wound up in Salisbury. Together, they'll have to summon the ghost of the late Knight Longspee as they work to uncover the secrets of a centuries old murder. But in a town haunted by ghosts set on revente, can Jon and Ella truly trust Longspee to protect them?
