The Séance
By John Harwood
The author of The Ghost Writer, an award winning book that was even made into a movie!

For the next bi-weekly book raffle!
(3 copies will be raffled off.)

Séance | noun | sé·ance |\ˈsā-ˌän(t)s, -ˌäⁿs, sā-ˈ\ :
a meeting where people try to communicate with the spirits of dead people.
(Merriam-Webster, Séance - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

“Constance grew up in a house marked by the death of her sister; she is no stranger to mystery, secrets, and dark magic.  In a desperate attempt to coax her mother back from perpetual mourning, Constance once took her to a séance, seeking comfort from beyond the grave.  But tragic consequences left her alone in the world – alone with Wraxford Hall.  Saddled with this questionable bequest, she must find the truth at the heart of the disappearances, apparitions, betrayal, blackmail, and villainy that mark its legacy, even at the cost of her life.” (The Séance, Summary)

“Perfect fare for a standard dark and stormy night.” – Kirkus Reviews

They Killed Our President

By Jesse Ventura

(Two copies will be raffled off)

Broken into four sections, the book delves into the evidence; the cover-up; the witnesses; and the why, who and how behind Kennedy’s assassination. Read everything you’ve ever needed to know about this conspiracy, from the ‘magic bullet’ theory and the Zapruder film to the silencing of witnesses and the Mafia’s involvement.” (They Killed Our President, Inside Cover)
