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 . . . . 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. . . . Suddenly terror engulfs Nora: She must defend herself against fantastic accusations even as a madman lies in wait. And when he springs, she will embark on a night journey that will put her victimhood to rest forever, dead or alive. . . . "Combines the intellectual-puzzle mystery with a powerful vein of psycho-thriller suspense." - The Washington Post "Surprising twists [and a] wildly inventive plot." - The New York Times Download and start listening now!

    " wow... what a book. I'd say easily through the first 60% of the book I was, in a word, confused. I could not even begin to form a cohesive idea as to what was going on in the story and what could possibly come from all the different aspects. This was not necessarily a bad thing. It is definitely fun to have the author keep you guessing. There has to be a thread to hold it together enough for me to want to find out, and this book definitely had that. This was very masterfully written and I'm very glad that I read it! "

    " Despite some flaws (with character motivation), an absorbing page-turner. I enjoyed it quite a bit. "

    " Awesome. Very unusual, but really good. "

    " I read this out of boredom while laid up with a broken elbow. Seriously not worth the effort. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 12/5/2013

    " Though I was hoping for more of a horror novel when I picked this up, I really got into it. Some parts tied together better than others, and while it did almost get my hopes up of something supernatural at times just to leave me hanging, I still enjoyed the story and got my money's worth. "

    " Not a bad read. The plot revolves around a story and a dead writer and a writer's commune. Ultimately forgettable though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Moira Russell | 11/22/2013

    " I found the violent rape scenes in this book so disturbing it put me off reading Straub for years (and I'm a fan -- I thought Ghost Story and lost boy lost girl were great). "

    " BORING AS THE TITLE "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joseph | 7/12/2012

    " I thought overall this book had a decent storyline but turned out to go in a different direction than I had imagined. There were parts in here that seemed out of place and potential plot lines that didn't follow through. "

    " a tad offensive but ok "

    " The way Dick Dart described the act of sex will never leave my mind. Very interesting...sorta true... "
