Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A young boy passes beyond the pale of death and returns with no answers — except chilling clues to the ultimate mystery...

An old man spends his life solving mysteries, until he wants to know nothing more of the terror of living and the horror of death...

A beautiful girl — her fate a question mark — is caught in a whirlpool of forces beyond her control...

In this chilling novel in Peter Straub's Blue Rose trilogy, characters fall prey to the intrigue that shadows them and all others in their world of wealth, power, and pleasure — and to an evil that reaches out from the abyss of the past to haunt the present and claim the living...

Review:

"A dark, labyrinthian tale of murder and family relationships...mesmerizing." Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

"[A] meaty tribute to mystery sub-genres....While evocative of place and time (the early '60s) and peopled with memorable characters, the story tries to fit into too many subgenres to succeed completely at any one." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Sensational...a terrific page-turner, superbly plotted, unforgettable characters." The Kansas City Star

Review:

"The near perfect mystery...has everything a classic whodunit should...full of intricate, engrossing, flesh-and-blood suspects and heroes...unexpected curves and potholes....The title says it all." Milwaukee Journal

Review:

"Murder, mayhem, mystery...a complex and satisfying tale...compelling characters...a pulse-pounding climax." The Cleveland Plain Dealer

Review:

"A tightly woven tale, crisply rendered, populated with well-drawn characters." San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"Marvelous...enormously satisfying...unashamedly designed to fascinate." The Sacramento Bee

Synopsis:

After a tragic accident which he barely survives, Tom Pasmore develops an obsession with death — an obsession which leads him to investigate two murders — one in the past and one in the present. And during his investigation, Pasmore learns more than anyone needs — or deserves — to know!

The mystery itself isn't nearly as twisty as that of The Throat, but this is a great novel, and it's fascinating to learn the origins of Tom Pasmore, one of my favorite Straub characters.
