The Blackbird sisters' great aunt Madeleine has died in a volcanic eruption on an Indonesian island and left her fabulous country estate, worth millions, to the three of them. But when Nora, Libby and Emma show up to claim their windfall, they find the house in a state of disheartening decay and all of Madeleine's exquisite treasures gone. What's even worse is that the mansion has been hiding a grisly secret: the body of a woman who died there many years ago. And all the evidence points to a high society murder.

Nora's special bond with flamboyant Aunt Madeleine compels her to seek out the truth. With her aunt's amorous stepson dogging her footsteps, her unscrupulous lawyer acting like a skunk, and her devoted housekeeper missing, this investigation is going to be tricky. Thankfully, her sisters will provide some unexpected -- and highly unorthodox -- assistance when she most needs it.

When a skeleton is found locked in the elevator of a mansion that the Blackbird sisters have recently inherited from their Aunt Madeleine, many suspect an accidental death due to lack of electricity. But Nora smells foul play, especially when the mansions treasures and artwork are found missing. Nora's special bond with her benevolent aunt spurs her to seek the truth and bring a killer to justice while trying to keep her sisters in line. Emma is expecting a mysterious love child and Libby is involved in a tabloid scandal. Michael is sidelined while under house arrest at the Blackbird Farm and is as naughty and distracting as ever.
