When the wealthy Dawson family disappears, abandoning their vast country estate, it goes unremarked. Except for Camellia, the sole heir, they were always reclusive.

Soon three more bodies are unearthed. But none are the long-missing girl. Where is Camellia? What happened to her, and why? And whose are the four bodies?
