As a detective investigates a series of murders, she begins to suspect supernatural forces and traces certain antiques back to a nineteenth century Virginia farmhouse, where two teens had slaughtered their own family.
Detective Janet Suarez moves to a town plagued by violence, and stays at a bed-n-breakfast run by a strangely morbid couple. She soon develops a romantic interest in Martha, the local antique store owner, and encounters Billy, a teen boy adopted by Martha who secretly keeps certain objects in circulation as part of a deal with the devil.    
Suarez investigates the recent “Nanny murders” and, after almost succumbing to the influence of one of the objects, traces them back to a Virginia farm house in the nineteenth century, where two teens had butchered their family. Realizing Billy is one of the teens, and that Martha is in danger, she confronts Billy.
