Introduction

"Eye of the Moon is a gothic mystery of the finest order, Eyes Wide Shut meets Agatha Christie."

Johnny's legendary socialite Aunt Alice mysteriously died while reading The Egyptian Book of the Dead when he and Percy were ten. They have been kept in the dark about that night ever since...

Twenty years later, they are reunited, along with family and guests, for a weekend house party at Rhinebeck, the sumptuous estate once owned by Alice.

But Rhinebeck holds more than just childhood memories.

From the family butler, they learn that Alice's story is far darker than anticipated, and will impact all their lives, particularly Percy's, before the weekend concludes.

All who attend are ensnared in a surprising web of mystery, Egyptian occultism, sumptuous elegance, and intrigue, where family members, guests, and even the servants have their own agendas, and nothing is what it seems.

This complex and sophisticated gothic mystery thriller is a page-turner you will not be able to put down.

"I enjoyed reading it so much that I have already picked it back up! I could not wait to be back at Rhinebeck with my friends Percy and Johnny."

"The book is closed, the weekend at Rhinebeck is over, and I don't want to let go of the sense of mystery and magic that permeates the story and all its intriguing characters."
