If you are in the mood for a creepy, edge-of-your-seat mystery, then look no further. Jim has moved with his father and sister into a huge old mansion, where Jim's father will be the head gardener. Right away, he can sense that this estate has dark secrets, and he feels like he's being watched. There are ghosts at Minerva Hall, and no one will believe him when he tries to tell about them. The only one who may be able to help him is a strange boy named Einstein. When someone starts leaving strange clues for him, Jim realizes that he is up against a centuries old curse, and he must find 'the seventh' and solve the mystery before more innocent people die.
