A $100,000 student loan is murder - but then so is a head stashed in your pantry.
Mariah Garrett has two weighty problems - crushing agoraphobia, and a six-figure student loan - the result of locking herself away in her great aunt Mae's seaside cottage after a tragedy. With the help of Uncle Sam over the intervening years, Mariah completes her PhD Online. Now, with the student loan bill coming due, Mariah is searching for something to sell on eBay one morning when she discovers a long forgotten staircase at the back of a little-used closet. As she starts down, her foot catches, plummeting her to the bottom and into the year 1957. There she meets her long-dead relatives and discovers that the Nifty Fifties can be a very dangerous place.
