A new novella of dark suspense by the author of more than 50 books, Edgar Nominated Billie Sue Mosiman.
It's 1984 and Bill Turk is building a mansion on the Gulf bay to rival all mansions. It will have 12 bedrooms and twelve bathrooms. It will have marble and wrought iron, a 40-foot pool, a Jacuzzi, a ballroom, and a garden maze. They're going to call it Mourning Mansion when he's done bringing his darkness to bear inside the brick walls. Parties will be thrown, drugs will be free and booze will flow. Bill's boys will have a wonderful time - all the way to the end. Jack DeShane is a veteran cop who has seen it all, but Mourning Mansion is some new hell he needs to investigate. Boys are missing. Bill Turk is an ex-con with more money than God. And Turk has put iron bars on all the verandahs and windows. Jack needs to find out why.
Open the door...the marble floors await you...the darkness and the courage to fight it all reside here inside Mourning Mansion.
Loosely based on true crimes that occurred along the Gulf Coast, Mourning Mansion features Detective Jack DeShane from the classic Mosiman novel, Wireman.
