Rick and Mandy Lynne Collins, both professionals working in Manhattan, are eager to find a serene vacation home. They need somewhere to decompress, an oasis of calm in their otherwise hectic lives. And if a new location results in a much wished-for pregnancy, well, so much the better.
The old house on Huxette Island, forty-five miles off the Rhode Island coast, seems like a perfect location. Even the building's strange name-Saskett's Escape-sounds romantic, hinting at some secret event in the building's past.
A mystery certainly exists, but its origins are far from romantic. Something haunts the halls of Saskett's Escape, something intimately connected with the island's locals. Intrigued, a curious Mandy puts her journalistic experience to use, uncovering a tale of murder and the occult. In doing so, she attracts the attention of an evil willing-even eager-to kill.
A fast-paced tale of intrigue, deceit, and the supernatural, Bob Ackerman's debut novel invites comparisons with the early work of Stephen King. Come visit Saskett's Escape. You might make it out alive, but you won't come out unscathed.
