William Patterson weaves a chilling novel of gothic suspense about the terror lurking within a beautiful mansion and the consequences for a newcomer who dares to call it home
Liz Huntington met her husband David, scion of one of Palm Beach s wealthiest families, just weeks ago. Their honeymoon was idyllic and Liz is blissfully happy at first. But she feels increasingly uneasy in her lavish new home. Huntington House and its staff still seem to be in the thrall of David s first wife. In fact, the housekeeper, Mrs. Hoffman, has made it clear that Liz can never measure up to the stunning, sophisticated, deceased, Dominique.
Though Dominique drowned in a yachting accident, Liz still senses her spirit in the house. She hears unexplained noises sees shadowy figures vanishing down the long corridors. The scent of Dominique s favorite flowers fills the air. But Liz s fears are more than insecurity. Two young women connected to Huntington House have already met terrible deaths. More will die and soon. Because behind the house s polished facade is an unimaginable secret and a love turned to twisted, unnatural obsession
