A pre-president John Quincy Adams is serving as ambassador to France when he and his wife have a problem in their home (the embassy). It seems that it is haunted by a ghost. Thomas Jefferson is also present in France at this time and gets involved in the affair.

A story of diplomatic espionage and ghostly apparitions. John Adams and Tom Jefferson lock horns over international politics, while John and his wife deal with a ghost in their apartment in France while on diplomatic assignment.


A pretty good tale that I'm surprised wasn't originally made closer to July 4th. I would hope there is some truth to the characters as they were played, but I'm not a historian so I don't know. A good listen for me.


Another hidden gem! Supernatural, horror, espionage, France, and US historical figures all add up to another Wu banger!
