The freaky ghost appears to live on the second floor of the old hotel in Nighthawk, and twelve-year-old Meggie wouldn't be caught dead up there if her best friend didn't need her help. Paige is trapped in an abandoned well, and Meggie must make a rope from the ragged curtains hanging in the windows and rescue her.
In the frantic process, a curtain rod collapses on Meggie's head. Stunned, Meggie picks up a crumpled note that falls out of the rusty old rod and finds the clue they believe will lead them to the treasure. In a race against time, Meggie and Paige follow the clues that lead to the legendary Haggerty gold, clues that send them wandering through Nighthawk and the Similikameen River Valley.
But why are the pain-in-the-neck kid, Jay Paul Leeberg, and an old man named Julian Cooksey following them? When they find themselves trapped in the Nighthawk Mine, they learn the shocking truth about the gold, the Ghost of Nighthawk, and the old man. In a surprising episode, old Julian Cooksey finds his missing daughter, a child whose message had been hidden in the curtain rod forty years before.
Discovering the clue--and then uncovering Cassie's treasure--leads the Ghostowners and the old man to something far more valuable than gold. It changes all of their lives forever.
