SYNOPSIS: A small-town public library is haunted by the ghost of the Bubble Gum Heiress, who was murdered in 1927 when two feuding bubble gum companies engaged in corporate espionage. Her murder was never solved, and her fortune was never found. Now three men, desperate to discover the whereabouts of the missing gold coin collection, descend on the library in search of clues hidden somewhere deep within the stacks. Their efforts are foiled, though, by the librarian, her crossing-guard sister who dreams of becoming a detective, two teenage lovers named Bobby and Bobbi, and a French novelist who writes the new murder mystery aloud as it unfolds before their eyes. On this dark and stormy night, a crime is committed, a culprit’s identified, a best-seller’s written, and whoever said “crime doesn’t pay,” never visited this little library.
