Out of the Fog

Out of the Fog by Dan Ross writing as Clarissa Ross
published by Magnum Books
Copyright 1979


The three neighboring houses on
Maine's seacoast seemed lost in the
fog, cut off from the rest of the world.
The houses belonged to Vera Waters,
her aunt - and now there was a strange
new family, who came shrouded in
mystery as deep as the fog. Who were
the Harpers? Just two men and a
woman who, as they claimed, liked the
area? If so, why did Aunt Samantha's
astrological readings, usually happy
and frequently correct, warn Vera
of impending danger?

The threat to Vera's sanity and life
become brutally clear the day a private
investigator arrived in town. One of
the Harpers, and Detective Egan, was
mad, haunted by an ancient murder -
and driven to kill again! Vera, equally
compelled, found herself the unwilling
bait in a trap more terrifying than
her worst imaginings!

I know exactly what Vera is going through. I know that more than once I had to wonder at the true motivation of my own neighbors. It is hard to believe that so many people would actually want to move into a housing development on a edge of Galloway Ohio. Really? You liked the area? I doubt it.

Also, what is that outfit. It's like she is a flasher. Well I guess the white gloves make her a "fancy" flasher, but still.

No signature on this one but this just one more reason I totally want to visit Maine. That has got to be the most exciting State in the Union.
