In THE LEGACY OF HORROR, Susan Runcan wants to clear the name of her famous archeologist grandfather Lindon Runcan. He died fifteen years earlier, his career under a cloud of suspicion. Although Lindon claimed thieves stole the ancient artifacts from his last expedition in Egypt, depriving the Egyptian government and his backers of the spoils, Lindon stole them himself. She found out as a child about this secret. Susan inherits these artifacts from her grandfather's estate after her uncle is murdered. Her grandfather's legacy includes a mysterious gold medallion, as well as his stately home in the mountain town of Lake Masley.

As the last of the Runcans, she feels duty-bound to restore her grandfather's reputation. Because she inherits his handwritten notebooks, she decides to write his biography. She comes to the lake, hoping to learn the reason why her grandfather risked his career for these artifacts, but finds a town gripped with fear and ruled by rumors. A handsome neighbor intrigues her, while the elderly ones make her wary. While surrounded by betrayal and murder, what Susan discovers will change her life forever.

The Legacy Of Horror is the first novel in the vampire trilogy, The Horror At The Lake.
