At The Edge Of Town. . .Karen Donovan no sooner marries bestselling novelist Philip Kaye when he leaves on a book tour, abandoning her at his Provincetown mansion with his sullen teenage daughter. Black-clad Jessie Kaye isn't exactly good company: When she's not skulking around, she's locked in her room writing in her journal, and her strangeness is a topic of local gossip. . .In The House On The Bluff. . . As autumn sets in, Karen befriends flamboyant local celebrity Bobbie Noble. But their plans to renovate Philip's house are sidetracked when Karen stumbles upon the diary of accused axe-murderess Lettie Hatch. It describes Lettie's boorish father and young, ambitious stepmother--both of whom would fall victim to a crazed killer. And the more Karen reads, the more she's convinced that Jessie, with her increasingly bizarre behavior, is channeling something sinister. . . Something Wicked Waits. When Philip returns, he's in no mood to entertain the theories that have grown into a nerve-jangling obsession for Karen. Now, as a bitter winter binds the Cape in snow and ice, Karen feels a presence taking over. It knows what happened here nearly a hundred years before. And it won't stop until history is rewritten--in blood.
