A baby's cry echoes in the basement of Proudshire Estate, yet there is no one left to hear her.
At the request of an old friend, Clyde Barker, a private investigator, launches into a dangerous investigation at the Proudshire Estate. The South Georgian family bands together to find their missing cousin.
However, nothing is what it seems. Clyde Barker's loyalties are tested as he fights to uncover the truth behind Dorothy-May Proudshire's vanishing, but not even the dead are willing to help him.
One after another, the family starts to dwindle. Clyde will give it his all to stop the onslaught...but should he?
