As Mallory and her official and unofficial partners, Riker and Charles Butler, investigate, a remarkable story begins to emerge – one of murderous greed and family horror, abandonment and loss, revenge and twisted love – a ghost story peopled by all-too-real flesh and blood. And in the end, though more people will die, and not well, it is Mallory herself will be most changed. Filled with the intricate plotting, resonant characters, and extraordinarily rich prose that are her hallmarks, Winter House is O’Connell’s most powerful – and most astonishing – novel yet.
Love and greed – these are two elemental passions Telcine Turner deals within this exciting three-act play. Set in The Bahamas, it tells the tale of a few people forging alliances for themselves – for love and/or money. The author writes with sensitivity and insights into her characters. Suspenseful and intriguing, ” Woman Take Two” provides a glimpse into the darker side of the human character.
