Nearly 12-year-old James Elliott is a bellhop in 1936 at the spooky McGrave's Hotel where guests are dying to check in. He has been there ever since his parents died a year ago while on a spy mission to Nazi Germany. All James wants is a goodbye message from his parents, but instead he is distracted by troublesome guests who require his assistance. He is busy with tasks like wrangling mutant spiders, searching for a priceless mummy, and attaching the head of a bridegroom. After all, this is just the kind of hospitality guests have come to expect while at McGrave's Hotel. But over the course of one frightful evening, everything changes. James will team with Death's daughter in a fight against Nazi sympathizers, monsters, and the undead in this riveting, deathly, historical adventure story.
