Hannah Smith returns in the stunning new adventure in the New York Times–bestselling series from the author of the Doc Ford novels.
The house is historic, some say haunted. It is also slated to be razed and replaced by condos, unless Hannah Smith can do something about it. She’s been hired by a wealthy Palm Beach widow to prove that the house’s seller didn’t disclose everything he knew about the place when he unloaded it, including its role in a bloody Civil War skirmish (in which two of Hannah’s own distant relations had had a part), and the suicides—or were they murders?—of two previous owners.
Hannah sees it as a win-win opportunity: She can stop the condo project while tracking her family history. She doesn’t believe in ghosts, anyway. But some things are more dangerous than ghosts. Among them, as she will learn, perhaps fatally, is human obsession.
Definitely not one of Whites's best books. I have enjoyed all of his previous books. This one just wasn't up to par.35
This book is a chore to read. I did not enjoy it and could be my last Hannah Smith book. I have ready all of Randy’s books and this was a disappointment15
Poorly or crudely drawn characters who appear and disappear at random and a mishmash of a plot. It seems like White, who I usually enjoy, scraped up all his cutting room floor leavings and dumped them in this book. Very disappointing.15
