One by one, guests disappear from a remote island inn… For years, Glenn and Oliver looked forward to their island retirement. They searched far and wide for the right property to renovate and turn into a bed and breakfast inn. The second they saw Parrot Ridge, they knew they’d found the place. The innkeepers’ dream location comes with a spectacular Caribbean view, a discounted price – and a disturbing history. Unbeknownst to Glenn and Oliver, the previous owners died in a violent domestic dispute. As a result, the islanders believe an evil spirit haunts the steep ravine beneath the property and will curse anyone who tries to build there. The first few disappearances are explained away, perhaps because no one wants to see the missing guests return. But as the body count rises, the story takes a dark turn. And one of the innkeepers falls victim to the curse of Parrot Ridge.
