About this item

A gothictale about Victor Hugo's long-buried secrets and the power of a love that neverdies... In 1843, novelist Victor Hugo's beloved nineteen-year-old daughterdrowned. Ten years later, still grieving, Hugo initiated hundreds of sancesfrom his home on the Isle of Jersey in order to reestablish contact with her. In the process, he claimed to have communed with Plato, Galileo, Shakespeare, Dante, Jesus--and even the devil himself. Hugo's transcriptions of theseconversations have all been published.

Or so ithas been believed...

Recoveringfrom a great loss, mythologist Jac L'Etoile thinks that throwing herself into workwill distract her from her grief. In the hopes of uncovering a secret about theisland's mysterious Celtic roots, she arrives on Jersey and is greeted byghostly Neolithic monuments, medieval castles and hidden caves. But the man whohas invited her there, a troubled soul named Theo Gaspard, hopes she'll help himdiscover something quite different-- transcripts of Hugo's lost conversationswith someone he called the Shadow of the Sepulcher. Central to his heritage, these are the papers his grandfather died trying to find. Neither Jac nor Theo anticipate that the mystery surrounding Victor Hugo will threaten their sanityand put their very lives at stake.

Seduction is a historically evocative and atmospherictale of suspense with a spellbinding ghost story at its heart, written by oneof America's most gifted and imaginative novelists. Awakening a mystery thatspans centuries, this multilayered gothic tale brings a time, a place and acast of desperate characters brilliantly to life.
