In 1932, Elisabeth Congdon, an unmarried heiress to a mining fortune, adopts a three month old baby girl.  The child, Marjorie, grows up in the Glensheen Mansion in Duluth, Minnesota, given everything she could possibly need, or want.

Forty-five years later, Elisabeth, who is beloved throughout the community, is found smothered in her bed. Her night nurse has been bludgeoned to death with a candlestick. Evidence points to Elisabeth’s son-in-law, Roger Caldwell and her adopted daughter Marjorie. This is the inside story of Marjorie Congdon and the stream of mysterious arsons and murders that have followed in her wake.
