As the newest secretary to Boston's most successful architect, Jonathan Barnes, I’m committed to making a good first impression. Despite his reputation as a "monster boss"—arrogant, demanding, impossible, and cruel—I’m drawn to the challenge of working with the best in the business. I’m determined to prove myself, even if it means hiding my working-class roots and missing out on a night of partying with my grad school friends on Halloween.
But when Jonathan and I are unexpectedly trapped in a building rumored to be haunted, I begin to see a different side of him. He may be a complicated and mysterious man, but as the night wears on, I realize there may be more to him than meets the eye. And as I confront my own fears of the unknown, I begin to wonder if I might be the one to finally tame the “monster."
