Penelope Wintercraft-Hawkes, a theater producer for the traveling troupe The Tamborlaine Players, and folklorist and building restorer Ringan Laine are ecstatic when they learn Penny inherited Bellefield, a theatre on Hawthorne Walk in London. She hires Ringan to restore the place as she plans to put on a play called Iphagenia.

However, from the moment that Penny sets foot in her new theatre she hears voices and sees visions of a woman on fire asking for a priest. The angry ghost hurt Ringan and indirectly caused the death of an art restorer. Until they can get rid of the ghost they cannot restore the place nor rehearse the upcoming production. With each passing day, the ghost grows stronger intending to use Penny as the means to leave Hawthorne Walk.
