Artfully re-creating 19th-century supernatural suspense, The Séance offers a near-total immersion into a haunted Bloomsbury world.
"If my sister Alma had lived, I should never have begun the séances." Constance Langton was only five when her life changed irrevocably. With the death of her younger sibling, the Langton household descended into a deep melancholy. To relieve her mother's sorrow, Constance resorts to a common Victorian nostrum: spiritualism. That decision leads to more tragedy, plunging the young woman into a borderline world where apparitions, possession, and murder hover in the air. This evocative tale by the International Horror Guild Awardwinning author of The Ghost Writer is a perfect fit for readers of G. R. James and Wilkie Collins.
