Deep in the lonely, cold woods of Milburn, New Hampshire there is a strange mansion called Round House. It has many rooms and many secrets. A young author, Scott Mast, has been drawn there to complete a horror novel that his dead father began writing years ago. Scott discovers a curse that burned the town's theater, killing many, and has tormented his family for generations. A curse that involves the ghost of twelve-year-old Rosemary Carver and her monstrously evil father.
From official release/information:
Product Description: When madness is your inheritance, how do you escape it?
Scott Mast thought he got away–first from a family haunted by a dark fate, then from a dull career writing greeting cards in Seattle. But now he has come back to his New Hampshire hometown only to find that his family is in ruins, his nephew needs a home, and a shattering truth is clawing its way into the light.
Fifteen years ago, Scott's mother died in a fire. And now the shadowy circumstances–the bodies buried beneath the ashes, the lives ripped apart that fateful day–are starting to be revealed. The answers unspool in the pages of a peculiar old manuscript–an unfinished ghost story written in his father's own hand that beckons Scott out to a strange house in the woods with a lightless corridor that cannot be seen from the outside. Here Scott Mast will uncover all that has been hidden–and perhaps finish his father's unspeakable work.
