Missing: September 1870 – Chinese Mail Order Bride, Mei Ling. Last seen boarding a train to San Francisco, California… Hasn’t been seen since.
Rain Deerfield, free-born woman, half-breed tracker for the missing minority class and bounty hunter for the United States Militia is on a search that hits close to home. Her childhood friend, Mei Ling, is among the hundreds of missing in the San Francisco territory. Could it be a coincidence or was all the missing somehow connected?
After advertising and paying for a mail order bride, handsome Dr. Wen Da Yang’s potential “wife,” Mei Ling, never arrives to his home, Alcatraz, “Island of the Pelicans.” Feeling he was duped of a bridal trousseau and train fare, Wen gives up on the idea of a wife and instead searches for the perfect domestic.
Miss Rain Deerfield embarks on the old abandoned military fortress and none too soon in Wen’s opinion. With the arrival of his new housekeeper, his serene world as he has known it is turned completely upside down with intrigue as one unexplained ghostly encounter after another occurs. Is Dr. Yang’s island home truly inhabited by ghosts or is there something more sinister going on?
