Shadow House

A novel by

This heart-stopping suspense novel from award-winning mystery/thriller writer Michael Allegretto is an ingenious story from the first page until the twisting shocker of a conclusion. Nora Honeycut, an attractive, thirty-year old divorcee, is leading a contented, secure life in Iowa. Then she receives the devastating news that her younger sister Annie has died in a bizarre accident in a small mountain town in Colorado. Nora travels to settle Annie's affairs, but what she finds are dark secrets surrounding her sister's death. When Nora tries to find out what Annie was doing in this remote place, her life is threatened. And when she seeks help from the local authorities, they turn violently against her. Her only ally is Thomas Whitney, who was engaged to Annie. Together they begin to uncover the mysteries of the town: there have been a number of unexplained deaths dating back a hundred years; the townspeople are reluctant to talk about certain events; and there appears to be a strange creature hidden away in a forbidding mansion. As Nora and Thomas delve deeper into the mystery of Annie's death, they become irresistibly drawn to each other. Nora must deal with her growing love for her dead sister's fiance and with her mounting fear that if they discover the awful secrets of the town they too will be hunted by a grotesque killer who would silence them forever.
