Full Synopsis

Condemned by the headlines, prodigious savants James and Edward Talley were confined to separate institutions for the remainder of their lives. Together, they had been incalculably brilliant. Alone, they retreated into dark silence. Thirty years later, one woman is braving the darkness to discover what really happened that cold-blooded night.

Released from her vows of fifteen years, former nun Christine Bennett (Megan Ward, Melrose Place) has left one cloistered world of the convent for a new one, moving into the suburban home of her late aunt. The neighborhood is also the site of Greenwillow, a care facility for developmentally challenged adults such as her cousin Gene (Matt Lutz, Bringing Down the House). But Greenwillow’s newest resident is causing a public outcry. James Talley’s alleged murderous past has branded him a madman—and a risk to the community. The compassionate Christine is stunned to learn that James and his brother Edward (David Proval, The Sopranos), institutionalised thousands of miles away, were never officially charged with the crime. Those destructive accusations are now jeopardising the future of Greenwillow and the safe haven it provides for Gene, James, and other innocents. But if the Talleys didn't kill their mother forty years ago, who did? Christine vows to find out.

Even with the help of Jack Brooks (Morgan Weisser, Space: Above and Beyond), a handsome sympathetic detective, Christine’s investigation is yielding more questions than she ever anticipated…What became of the Talley’s maid? What turned the family housekeeper into a bitter recluse? Who is the suspicious visitor at Greenwillow? Whatever happened to the twins’ father who disappeared decades ago? Who is the phantom stalker who threatens Christine’s every move? For the persevering amateur sleuth—a woman on the road to discovering her independence—there’s only one way to find out the answers. She must finally reunite the Talley brothers and take them back to the thirty-year-old nightmare that haunts them. But dangerous sense-memory games reveal more than anyone is prepared for—including the shocking identity of a killer who will strike again to keep the secrets of the past buried forever.

To solve a crime all it takes “is a leap of faith,” says Christine Bennett, a unique and exciting addition to the ranks of inventive amateur sleuths. Co-starring Oscar, Emmy, and Golden Globe-winning actress Patty Duke (The Miracle Worker) and based on the first of Lee Harris’s Edgar nominated series of novels, Unholy Ghosts is absorbing, thrilling, and unpredictable entertainment that could easily become a habit.
