"From the author of the contemporary cult classic, Lives of the Monster Dogs, comes a haunting mystery about the fate of women and girls in the orbit of self-important men." -- Publisher annotation.
Set in November 1918 on the opulent, castle-like island estate of an eccentric millionaire, Claude Arkel, this atmospheric, compellingly readable novel reimagines the life of Anna Filing Fort, whose husband, Charles Hoy Fort, was the most famous "anomalist" of the early twentieth century. Settling in as guests on Prosper Island, the young couple find themselves quarantined in a shabby outpost far from Mr. Arkel's mansion, from which, they learn, three girls have gone missing. After she encounters a figure in the woods that may be the ghost of her long-lost friend Mary, Anna resolves to find out who Mr. Arkel really is, and what has become of the missing girls.
