Soon the house lies abandoned, and years later a new family moves in.

This is an astonishing, nasty, brilliant, upsetting work.

I tried to like this book. I wanted to be invested in the characters and in solving the mystery. But I’m not sure the author wanted me invested. I feel he was taking out his disappointments in the publishing industry on his readers.

An eminently readable but melodramatic story that dilutes its suspense with far-fetched metafiction.
