“Surprising twists [and a] wildly inventive plot.”
They are dying, one by one. Wealthy, middle-aged women in an exclusive Connecticut suburb. Their murderer remains at large. Nora Chancel, wife of publishing scion Davey Chancel, fears she may be next. After all, her past has branded her a victim . . . .
“Combines the intellectual-puzzle mystery with a powerful vein of psycho-thriller suspense.”
Then Davey tells Nora a surreal story about the Hellfire Club, where years before he met an obsessed fan of Chancel House’s most successful book, Night Journey–a book that has a strange history of its own. . . .
“One of the most chilling villains to come along since Hannibal Lecter.”
