Mary Roberts Rinehart
William A. Porter, professor of English, inherits a large seaside house from his
Uncle Horace. He is not fully satisfied with the explanation of his uncle's death.
He moves to the lodge for the following summer with his wife and niece, and
rents out the main house. Mysterious and sinister things begin to happen at night
in the neighborhood. Local superstitions center around a red lamp in the house
which some believe exerts a baleful influence. The professor must try to find out
what is going on without himself becoming the center of suspicion.
