Synopsis for "The House that Wasn't"Edit

Diana Prince and I-Ching, traveling in a car through a snowstorm, pick up two motorists having car trouble and soon discover their new passengers are escaped convicts holding guns on them. Soon, Diana’s car stalls as well, and all four of them have to take refuge at the Inn of the White Horse. Four others are there, including the female innkeeper, her son Lemuel, a writer names James Arnett, and a little man with a briefcase. One of the convicts eventually stabs the little man, mistakenly thinking he has stolen money in his briefcase, and is in turn killed falling down the stairs in flight from an unseen attacker. When the other convict is killed in the dark, Diana sees the innkeeper has no reflection, and stops the others from drinking what turns out to be poisoned ale. Lemuel tries to strangle Diana, but I-Ching knocks him away with his silver-headed cane. Lemuel and his mother hold Diana and the other two at gunpoint, explaining that they are ghosts and can only appear during storms like these, in which they have the chance to “take...enough souls” to enable them to appear and disappear at will. Diana kicks Lemuel’s guns away, and she, Arnett, and I-Ching escape, setting the Inn ablaze and burning it to the ground.
