Description
A millionaire's Florida estate becomes a sinister trap for his bride in this classic gothic romance from "a superb and gifted storyteller" (Mary Higgins Clark). On the Florida coastline stands Poinciana, the Logan family's fabulous mansion. Inside its storied walls are the two most prized possessions of patriarch Ross Logan: his invaluable collection of Oriental art and, even more priceless, his new bride, Sharon. When Ross proposed, it seemed Sharon's dreams had come true and her tragic past was at last behind her. Now she'd be safe and find happiness, a family, and a home as the wife of one of America's wealthiest and most celebrated oil and banking magnates. But upon her arrival at the sprawling Palm Beach estate, Sharon can't ignore the strange undercurrents of hostility emanating from everyone who resides at Poinciana—from Ross's principal assistant to his reckless and resentful daughter from a previous marriage to his strange and guarded mother, who has isolated herself in a cottage on the grounds. And when Sharon starts asking questions about the Logan family history, even Ross turns from a dynamic and solicitous husband to a dark and silent menace. As secret after secret is revealed, Sharon begins to doubt her sanity—and safety—in this isolated house of strangers. A New York Times –bestselling author and recipient of the Edgar and Agatha Awards, "Phyllis Whitney is, and always will be, the Grand Master of her craft" (Barbara Michaels). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Phyllis A. Whitney including rare images from the author's estate.
