Someone is conspiring against Bailey, and it seems that this enemy has plans to purge Volstead Manor through fire. The authorities believe that the cause of the minor blaze was merely electrical in nature, but Bailey, an amateur sleuth, knows better than that. In the midst of her personal investigation, she discovers a vault hidden in her cellar, sealed off from prying eyes for many years. The secret she finds there has ties to the darkest period of Prohibition, when some groups would resort to the most heinous acts in order to maintain their profitable bootlegging practices. Now, as Bailey makes every effort to solve the case of this mystery mansion fire, she realizes that her life is in grave danger. And she must act quickly, because the villain is on its way. She may only have hours to live…
