Overview

In a historic American town, on a dead-end road named Bog Lane, a spacious home goes up for sale. Located near Cape Cod Bay, the house comes with six acres of lush woodlands. Its owner, a wealthy geologist, instructs a real-estate agent to sell the place at a substantially reduced price as quickly as possible. The geologist then sets off for Brazil on urgent business. The extraordinary deal lures a hard-working couple and their son to Bog Lane. When they explore the house they find an enormously enlarged basement that contains a vast, tropical garden. This underground jungle is the first in a series of strange turns that increasingly mystify and imperil the home’s new occupants.

Thousands of miles away, deep in the Amazon rain forest, an American explorer renews his relationship with an isolated tribe of people known as Inucans. They give him a hero’s welcome, and their veneration only grows when he promises to rid the Inucans of all disease and make them the envy of all nations. But the Inucan chief, and a Bolivian nurse who lives with the tribe, wonder how the visitor intends to achieve these goals. They gradually come to realize that the American is the harbinger of something far less benign than wishful promises.

The Secret of Bog Lane unfolds in present-day Brazil and Massachusetts. The people in both locations are in grave danger as they face an evil that is as ancient as the Tower of Babel and as modern as the most advanced scientific technology.

Meet the Author

Americo Tulipano, the author of this thriller and a native of Massachusetts, spent ten months in the Peruvian portion of the Amazon studying the subjects that frame some of the novel’s sub-plots—herpetology and genetics. He masterfully draws the reader into the evil plot that unfolds in the collision of these two diverse worlds.

    Extraordinary Book - a must read

    Not only did this book have a wonderful story line but the writer is extremely talented. This book was an absolute page turner, I couldn't put it down. The mysterey and suspense builds throughout the novel and reading it at night you will get chills down your spine. Great for all readers!
