The Ghost Orchid

by Carol Goodman

The Ghost Orchid Synopsis

Bosco: once a beautiful, stately home, now a tranquil artists' retreat. Ellis Brooks has come here for the peace and quiet - and for the opportunity to write a novel inspired by the scandalous events that took place in the mansion's early days, a scandal involving a medium of dubious repute, three dead children and a seance that ended in tragedy. As Ellis delves into Bosco's sinister history, she starts to uncover unnerving connections between the living and the dead. The past is forcing its way into the present, and - as the members of the artistic community come under greater and greater threat - Ellis must untangle the truth caught up in the house's murky past, before it ensnares them all...
