Suspicionby Barbara Rogan
Synopses & Reviews
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.
A writer of ghost stories takes up residence in an old house her husband has discovered on Long Island Sound. Soon, the house is haunted by strange happenings, and characters from Emma's book begin taunting her. Are they supernatural occurrences or does someone from Emma's secret past wish her harm? Everything is cast in suspicion, even Emma's marriage.
