The Wilkes House Haunting
by Lisa Maliga
Curtis Angeles moves from suburban Chicago to a rural Florida town in search of peace, quiet and privacy. Instead, he almost loses his life uncovering some deadly deceptions…
He has survived the hell of watching his wife of sixteen years die of brain cancer. Emotionally drained and psychologically scarred, he escapes the cold Chicago winters and bittersweet memories, and moves to rural Neroli, Florida. He seeks peace, quiet and privacy--but will he find it? Curtis rents an apartment in a large historical house, which he shares with an antiques store owned by Larry "the landloooord" Pleasant. He settles in, relaunching his online graphic design business, and tries to begin the healing process. Soon, unseen dark forces emerge within his home. Are they paranormal? Demonic? Psychological? And just as he's getting into a routine, the antiques business is replaced with "The Conservatory" which is run by Able McCormick, a narcissist and self-appointed dictator of Neroli.
Part horror, part psychological thriller, "The Wilkes House Haunting" follows Curtis into a world where something sinister is determined that his journey will end in a violent death.
