Publisher Comments:

In the common course of events, people choose houses. Sometimes, though, it doesn't work that way. Sometimes houses choose people: They reach out, they whisper, they entice and enfold.

Novelist Emma Roth was convinced that New York City was the only place to live, until the day she encountered the old Victorian mansion overlooking the Long Island Sound. Her husband, Roger, a chaos physicist, was entranced by the ever-changing convergence of land, water, and air; their son, Zack, by a backyard large enough for a real game of soccer. But for Emma, it was the octagonal tower library, whose panoramic view suggested a sort of omniscience no writer could resist.

Yet no sooner do they move into their dream house than the seemingly impossible occurs. Characters in a computer game address cruel personal remarks to Emma. Her manuscript is tampered with, her home invaded, her family threatened. Before long it is obvious that her tormentor not only has access to her home and her computer's hard drive, but also to her innermost thoughts, secrets, and fears. Hers is an intimate enemy, both vicious and elusive.

Because these things happen only when Emma is alone in the house, she is driven to question her own sanity. Could Roger be right when he hints that it's all in her head? Local rumor has it that the house is haunted, but Emma, a writer of ghost stories herself, no more believes in real ghosts than professional magicians believe in magic. As the trespasses into her life grow more bizarre and more dangerous, suspicion is cast in ever-widening arcs, until Emma is left to question every relationship she has, including her marriage.

Suspicion is an irresistible and addictively compelling tale about a woman who is both haunted and hunted.

Synopsis:

In the common course of events, people choose houses. Sometimes, though, it doesn't work that way. Sometimes houses choose people.

Emma Roth, successful novelist, never imagined living anywhere but New York City, until she finds the perfect house. It's a beautiful coastline mansion on Long Island, with a glassed-in tower library any writer would kill for. But no sooner does Emma move into the house with her scientist husband, Roger, and her son, Zack, than eerie things begin happening. Characters from Emma's book begin taunting her. Treatening messages appear on her computer screen. Blood is found on the stairs — in the exact spot where the former tenant fell to her death. Because these things happen only when she's alone, Roger suspects she's imagining them.

Is it the house that's haunted, or is it Emma herself? There are secrets in her past known only to her closest friends...and her tormentor. As the intrusions into her life and home grow ever more bizarre and dangerous, suspicion is cast on every relationshop she has, including her marriage.

A brilliant reworking of the classic tale of one woman's haunting, Suspicion is a chilling and remarkable entry in the annals of modern suspense.
