They are dying, one by one. Wealthy, middle-aged women in an exclusive Connecticut suburb. Their murderer remains at large. Nora Chancel, wife of publishing scion Davey Chancel, fears she may be next. After all, her past has branded her a victim.... Then Davey tells Nora a surreal story about the Hellfire Club, where years before he met an obsessed fan of Chancel House's most successful book, Night Journey - a book that has a strange history of its own.
Suddenly terror engulfs Nora: She must defend herself against fantastic accusations even as a madman lies in wait. And when he springs, she will embark on a night journey that will put her victimhood to rest forever, dead or alive....
"Combines the intellectual-puzzle mystery with a powerful vein of psycho-thriller suspense." (The Washington Post)
"Surprising twists [and a] wildly inventive plot." (The New York Times)

Get the abridged version!
Way too long! I got bored half way through -- but was determined to finished it. The abridged version probably would have been just long enough. I generally like Straub, but this was not one of his best. Plus the narrator's tone and diction was not a good match. At first I thought I was listening to some kind of comedy or children's book -- he sounded like Winnie the Pooh.
Not sure of a name, but someone with a deeper timbor than Lawlor.
Some - just too long.
