With the unexpected death of their Aunt Thortis, John Barrington and his sister Ellen suddenly find themselves as the new owners of an old mansion located in the middle of Michigan's wild and beautiful Upper Peninsula. The house, known to the locals as The Four Chimneys, had been constructed by a rich and powerful lumber baron and was now being watched over by the caretaker Mrs. Pritchard and her son Elroy. Moving to Michigan seemed like a perfect way for John to escape a failing marriage and to get his daughter, Samantha, away from the mean streets of Chicago. John and Samantha's idyllic country lifestyle is soon in danger as they discover Four Chimneys comes with a multitude of secrets, some of them deadly.
