    Abner Cray, a photographer, comes to New York City to work on a new coffee table book about Manhattan. An old acquaintance has offered to let him use his apartment while in the city, and though the two never really got along, Abner accepts. In the apartment he finds that a woman named Phyllis Pellaprat is already in residence, and over a short period of time, Abner falls in love.

    Audiofile says: "haunting cozy, great narration"
    "Great start -- Ending fell flat"

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I'd recommend this story to someone who didn't care about a well crafted ending. The book seemed to be going somewhere, but at the very end it dragged on past when the story should have been cut off. The last half an hour or so is useless, as the narrative meanders away from an edgy finale into a murky, confused finish.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the scene where the main character and friend(s) scare the crap out of themselves in a mausoleum.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    I wasn't turned off by the cousin-incest, but some people might be. My problem with this story was that the ending fizzled out, lost its edge, quit being interesting, and ruined the whole thing for me.
