A complex ghost story unravels on a New York estate, Bosco, presently a writers' retreat. There are many more ghosts than living entities on this ground, and these spirits are none too subtle in their haunting. Jen Taylor does a mesmerizing job with the panoply of characters, living and dead. Amid the gardens and fountains of Bosco there lingers a legacy of murder and madness that slips into the present day in countless eerie ways. Goodman's interest in this tale is with the dead, who become far more dimensional than the living. Taylor responds with enthusiasm by making them far more memorable than the untidy group of writers wintering at the estate. B.H.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
