This book is about the California "land grabs" of Mission Santa Cruz, Villa de Branciforte and Rancho San Andres, and focuses on the lost pieces of the Magnolia Rose Hotel. This book documents the Heinz conspiracy to steal the land grant titles from the Castro family in Mission Santa Cruz. The series continues to unravel the complicated politics and family ties of A.F. Heinz (Ketchup) and C. Spreckels (Sugar), both famous early "founders" of Mission Santa Cruz. The destruction of the Mexican Capitola at the Palace of Nancy (now called the "Rispin Mansion") and the removal and repositioning of the Magnolia Rose hotel into five separate mansions in Santa Cruz has created a series of haunting.
