Bronze (2005)

Details Release Date: Oct 15, 2005; Writer: Kit Reed; Genres: Fiction, Horror; Publisher: Night Shade

Jude is intrigued when she learns her new flame, Peter Benedict, comes from a legendary dynasty of sculptors. But their fledgling romance becomes mired in a horrific family secret. When ambitious matriarch Ava draws the far-flung Benedicts to their ancestral South Carolina home under the guise of artistic collaboration, Peter knows she has something more sinister in mind. Jude discovers Ava's diabolical plan ever so gradually, after considerable hand-wringing. Alas, readers will guess the book's twist far sooner. Elegantly constructed but predictable, Kit Reed's Bronze creates as much frustration as tension.
