Summary
"When twentysomething A., the European relative of the Wells family, inherits a beautiful yet eerie estate set deep in the woods of Point Bless, Virginia, it comes as a surprise to everyone--including A. himself. After all, he never knew he had a 'second cousin, twice removed' in America, much less that his eccentric relative had recently committed suicide by jumping out of the third floor bedroom window--at the same age and in the same way as his father had before him"--Amazon.com
Summary
A 23-year-old student who goes by “A.” travels from Europe to Virginia to claim an estate he’s inherited. Along with his companion, a mute Irish punk girl named Niamh, he finds an opulent mansion but wonders about the suicide of his distant relative. The pair gradually learns about old family secrets and finds a mysterious basement vault. A. relates his tale through letters, journal entries, emails, ciphers, hand-written notes, and transcriptions of video and audio recordings. This engaging and offbeat narration raises chill bumps as A. and Niamh trace clues right up to the twisty ending. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
