Private investigator Dan Landis just wanted to have a nice, relaxing vacation with his best friend, Leroy "Doc" Brown. They've booked two rooms at the luxurious Gray Ghost Inn in scenic Warrenton, Virginia. Then Dan's new partner, Abbey, talks herself into going along. And, wherever Dan and Abbey go, trouble isn't too far behind. Dan, Abbey and Doc get snowed in with a crazy crowd: Betsey Butler, the Southern Belle hostess; her obnoxious brother Dave "Big Bear" Butler; and Dave's ex-wife, Em. When a body turns up in the library, Dan realizes his simple vacation isn't so simple anymore. Now, Dan and his two best friends are trapped in the Gray Ghost Inn with a killer, and it'll take all of his wits, charm and detective skills to solve the mystery before it's too late. Continuing the story begun in "The Five Santas", and picking up immediately after the events from "Cult Of Koo Kway", the adventure continues in the third exciting installment of the "Oncoming Storm" quartet. Jay Mims continues his unique brand of storytelling as readers go on a wild and entertaining ride into the eccentric world of Dan Landis and friends.
