Ruby Rosseau’s senior year was marred by a controversial affair with a professor of English. When her affair became public, she was made fun of and was joked about. Ruby faced so much humiliation at the hands of her fellow students and the teaching staff that she was forced to drop out of college. Ruby was also suffering from a deep sense of depression at that time. She used to question her sanity under the effect of the depression and had even attempted to commit suicide, but it failed. While living in her own lonely life in the present, Ruby Rosseau receives a mysterious briefcase with paisley print on it. The briefcase had Ruby’s name marked on it and an address of a different person. Ruby tries to track down the address and return the briefcase to its actual owner. When Ruby Rosseau arrives at the address, she realizes that it is the house of a lady named Beth Richards, who has a dorm mate of hers during her college days. Ruby learns that Beth has disappeared a couple of days ago and has not been found since then. Ruby doesn’t know what to do or where to find Beth.

When she opens the briefcase, she realizes that the contents inside the luggage are the only tangible things that can provide evidence about the whereabouts of Beth Richards. Ruby gets consumed by Beth’s sudden disappearance and at the same time her briefcase reaching her. She more consumed by the fact that Beth’s luggage had a copy of the book which Ruby had used to base her thesis on and which was the reason she actually started doing mad things in her senior college year. Ruby Rosseau decides to go on and find the truth related to Beth Richards’ past as well as her own. During her course of doing, Ruby ends up reexamining some people in her past. One of them was the professor, who made it difficult for her to continue college and eventually broke her heart. Other people that Ruby thinks about are the dead lady writers, who keep giving her hints about joining the illustrious groups run by them as ghosts.
