On the eve of his college graduation, Harry is called home by his stepmother, Alice, to their house on the Maine coast, following the unexpected death of his father. But who really is Alice, his father's much younger second wife? 

As her past entwines with Harry's in the present, things grow increasingly dark and threatening - will Harry be able to see any of it clearly through his own confused feelings?

Oh! What A Tangled Web We Weave


A well-developed plot and characters that seem real and compelling, but a bit disturbing, as the theme is paedophilia and relationships like Lolita, where love and prohibited erotism are a poison that spreads from one generation to the next.
The writer and writing are not exploitative, but the subject is what it is and feels a bit icky; so be warned.
It also works as a murder mystery that is a bit more of a psychodrama.
