Overview
Rainey Bliss Adams desperately needed a new start when she and her daughter Ariel relocated from St. Louis to Old Gate and settled into the house where the Bliss family had lived for over a century. Rainey s husband had been killed in a freak explosion that left her 14 year-old daughter Ariel scarred and disfigured At the grand housewarming party, Bliss House begins to reveal itself again. Ariel sees haunting visions: the ghost of her father, and the ghost of a woman being pushed to her death off of an upper floor balcony, beneath an exquisite dome of painted stars. And then there is a death the night of the party. Who is the murderer in the midst of this small town? And who killed the woman in Ariel's visions? But Bliss House is loath to reveal its secrets, as are the good folks of Old Gate. "

Bliss House, with its blood-stained history of madness and murder, would scare off most potential buyers, but not interior decorator Rainey Bliss Adams, in Benedict’s creepy, solidly crafted supernatural suspense novel. In the wake of the gas explosion in St. Louis that killed her husband and left her 14-year-old daughter, Ariel, badly burned, Rainey moves to Virginia’s Blue Ridge foothills to buy the ancestral home that she fell in love with as a child. For Ariel, the nightmare begins in the wee hours after the housewarming party, when she groggily sees what appears to be a spectral young woman fall to her death from the third-floor balcony; the next morning, there’s a very real body. Lines between fact and fantastic, past and present, increasingly blur, as Benedict (Calling Mr. Lonely Hearts) interweaves the ensuing murder investigation with the chilling story of a young woman kept as a sex slave within Bliss House’s walls a generation earlier. The final revelation hits horrifyingly close to home for Rainey. Agent: Susan Raihofer, David Black Agency. (June)
