|Plot Summary of Something Wicked|
|"Retired professor Andrew Bassnet is staying in his nephew's house in the village of Godlingham while his nephew is in Paris. Andrew enjoys the quiet village and the company of his new neighbors. Then, during a heavy snowstorm, the electric power goes off, and Andrew finds a dead body in his cold, dark house. This murder bears a remarkable resemblance to an unsolved murder which took place in the village ten years before, and Andrew is drawn into searching for the solutions for both crimes. "
