From the author of Mr. Shivers comes a tale of intrigue, American gothic, and supernatural suspense.
George Carole is an uncommonly gifted pianist in search of something lost. His search leads him to Vaudeville and to one troupe in particular — the Silenus Troupe.
But the answers to George’s questions are met with more questions — deeper and stranger and deadlier mysteries. He must uncover the truth behind the troupe and their strange, mystical ways before it is too late. A dark power threatens all of them, but what role George and the others must play remains to be seen.
