For more than a hundred years, creative souls have traveled to the Bosco estate to live and work under its captivating spell. Novelist Ellis Brooks is writing a book based on the dark events that took place during the summer of 1893. All she knows is that the wealthy Milo Latham brought in a psychic medium to help his wife contact their three dead children-only to have the seance turn deadly, and his remaining child abducted. As Ellis uncovers the Latham family's dark secrets, a series of bizarre accidents occur. The lines between past and present, living and dead blur, until the tangled truth threatens to ensnare all it touches.

Professional reviews

"A complex ghost story unravels on a New York estate, Bosco, presently a writers' retreat. There are many more ghosts than living entities on this ground, and these spirits are none too subtle in their haunting. Jen Taylor dus a mesmerizing job with the panoply of characters, living and dead. Amid the gardens and fountains of Bosco there lingers a legacy of murder and madness that slips into the present day in countless eerie ways. Goodman's interest in this tale is with the dead, who become far more dimensional than the living. Taylor responds with enthusiasm by making them far more memorable than the untidy group of writers wintering at the estate. B.H.B. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
