Teenager Lin Fox is a stranger in a strange land—Germany, where her father has come on a quest to locate a priceless artifact. The medieval (and possibly mythical) Allerheiligen stained glass is believed by some to be lost, by others to have been destroyed, and by virtually all to be haunted. A mysterious letter persuades Dr. Fox that he can be the one to find it—but someone else is determined to ensure that the glass stays hidden forever.
First, a stranger is found dead in an orchard, then one of Dr. Fox’s contacts is mysteriously drowned—both bodies inexplicably surrounded by shards of glass. As dark superstitions simmer, Lin embarks on her own search to find the glass. She realizes that what she must find is not only the truth about the legendary glass but a way to save the lives of those she loves.
