Summary

Oscar Predest is a prominent child psychiatrist specializing in hypnosis. When his son Tobias goes missing, Oscar abandons his whole life to find him. After countless failed searches, Oscar is approached one night by a woman with an unusual request – an invitation to her son’s exorcism. Surprised to hear a “specialist” has been solicited from the Vatican, Oscar attends the ceremony only to find that the voice possessing the boy recognizes him. This voice reveals itself as the spirit who once inhabited the man who murdered Oscar's son.
 
Alongside Lauren, the detective who led the search for his missing son, Oscar investigates the crime on another, paranormal front. What they find, in this spiritual autopsy, is a murderer with a mysterious history, which in turn leads Oscar back to the possessed child, Ryan. Through hypnosis, Oscar manages to speak to the spirit. These therapeutic sessions are as explorative as they are dangerous. But Oscar needs to know more about the conventions of this alternative world of reincarnated spirits. It opens doors of impossibility never imagined by Oscar or the Vatican specialist, Father Bosco.
 
As Oscar inches closer and closer to this forbidden tree of knowledge, Father Bosco, the exorcist from the Vatican, begins to exhibit strange behavior, with visible, physical injuries. What results is an apocalyptic finale between good and evil in the reincarnated world, shedding new insight into the controversial theories of predestination and reincarnation, where Oscar, Father Bosco, Ryan, Lauren, Theresa, and even Nathan’s spirit, encounter findings of an extraordinary nature.

    A chilling medieval ghost story, retold by bestselling historian Dan Jones. Published in a beautiful small-format hardback, perfect as a Halloween read or a Christmas gift. 
     
    One winter, in the dark days of King Richard II, a tailor was riding home on the road from Gilling to Ampleforth. It was dank, wet and gloomy; he couldn't wait to get home and sit in front of a blazing fire.
     
    Then, out of nowhere, the tailor is knocked off his horse by a raven, who then transforms into a hideous dog, his mouth writhing with its own innards. The dog issues the tailor with a warning: he must go to a priest and ask for absolution and return to the road, or else there will be consequences...
     
    First recorded in the early fifteenth century by an unknown monk, The Tale of the Tailor and the Three Dead Kings was transcribed from the Latin by the great medievalist M.R. James in 1922. Building on that tradition, now bestselling historian Dan Jones retells this medieval ghost story in crisp and creepy prose.

    A spinster librarian in New York City becomes obsessed with a patron and his haunted house in this novel by the author of The Mermaid of Brooklyn. In a city teeming with stories, how do lost souls find one another? It’s a question Meg Rhys doesn’t think she’s asking. Meg is a self-identified spinster librarian, satisfied with living with her cat, stacks of books, and her dead sister’s ghost in her New York City apartment. Then she becomes obsessed with an intriguing library patron and the haunted house he’s trying to research. The house has its own story to tell too, of love and war, of racism’s fallout and the ghost story that is gentrification, and of Brooklyn before it was Brooklyn. What follows is an exploration of what home is, how we live with loss, who belongs in the city and to whom the city belongs, and the possibilities and power of love.Praise for Unseen City “Gripping, moving, and vital, Unseen City asks how human life might defy its lifespan—in the throes of love, the conviction of belief, and each person’s mark upon a city that will survive them. For two days, I laughed at Amy Shearn’s wry humor and gasped at her gorgeous sentences; I couldn’t put this brilliant book down until its perfect final line (and I’m haunted still—which is appropriate, I suppose)!” —Miranda Beverly-Whittemore, bestselling author of June and Bittersweet “A ghost story that focuses not on a single spirit but on an entire city whose layered history haunts its occupants. . . . Like the ghosts who inhabit its pages, the novel lingers long after you’ve put it down.” —Kirkus Reviews “Luminous. . . . Shearn’s nimble storytelling unearths a fascinating and fraught history.” —Publishers Weekly “Amy Shearn’s modern fable Unseen City is anchored by smart, sly humor. It delves into the layered social, psychological, and historical architecture of New York City. . . . [It] demands calling out the names of the dead, assuring its audience that they’re ready to answer and say, “I’m here.” —Foreword Reviews
