    Sinopsis de: "The Garden of Blue Roses"

    "Ominous, fantastic, and wonderfully malevolent.... I felt the spirits of Shirley Jackson, Edgar Allan Poe, and Albert Camus' Meursault, whispering to join the fun."-- Alice Sebold, best-selling and award-winning author of The Lovely Bones A car lies at the bottom of an icy ravine. Slumped over the steering wheel, dead, is the most critically acclaimed horror writer of his time. Was it an accident? His son Milo doesn't care. For the first time in his life, he's free. No more nightmarish readings, spooky animal rites, or moonlit visions of his father in the woods with a notebook and vampire make-up. Or so he thinks. Milo settles into a quiet routine--constructing model Greek warships and at last building a relationship with his sister Klara, who's home after a failed marriage and brief career as an English teacher. Then Klara hires a gardener to breathe new life into their overgrown estate. There's something odd about him--something eerily reminiscent of their father's most violent villain. Or is Milo imagining things? He's not sure. That all changes the day the gardener discovers something startling in the woods. Suddenly Milo is fighting for his life, forced to confront the power of fictional identity as he uncovers the shocking truth about his own dysfunctional family--and the supposed accident that claimed his parents' lives. "[A] taut mystery about how the lives we lead are forever changed by the stories we tell and the secrets we keep." -- Ramona Ausubel, award-winning author of Sons and Daughters of Ease and Plenty and No One is Here Except All of Us "[T]his rich neo-gothic novel...captures us with an eerie power exactly like Henry James' governess and the stressed-out, dreamy extremists of Poe. Milo, the son, the brother, the watcher, the spy, had my sleeve fiercely in his fist the whole way." -- Ron Carlson, award-winning author of Five Skies "[B]rilliantly probes the authorship of horror in its many arenas: history, war, parenting, nature, love, the imagination." -- Michelle Latiolais, award-winning author of Widow and She.
