The woman in the long, black cape appeared at night the way visions usually do. Alexandra Pirrot, FBI agent, traveled to a historical chateau in the French countryside. She is chosen by the chateau's resident ghost to return to the gruesome time of 1789—the French Revolution—when blood ran down the streets of Paris. She is determined to piece together the long held secrets and mystery surrounding her family.
To help link the past and the present, Alexandra joined forces with French attorney, Jean Paul Morneau, who has been hired to defend the present day chateau owner on murder charges. Two sets of footprints are led by the ghost on a romantic journey, into a time of treachery and betrayal, to rescue one of the aristocracy from Madam Guillotine and to help another who is no longer alive, but has not crossed over, find peace.
