There were four cousins in the Morse family perfect Kenny the preppy West Coast lawyer; James the shy but brilliant medical student; his seductive hard drinking sister Audrey; and Teresa youngest and most fragile haunted by the fear that she has inherited the madness that possessed her fatherTheir grandfather summons them to his mansion at Ow. There is no doubt that Goya s paintings are disturbing And this mysterious and suspenseful was just as disturbing15 years after the theft of the supposedly cursed painting the four cousins are summoned back to the house of their grandfather When Teresa and Audrey arrive they find the man dead His face a frozen mask of horror and fearuestions fly as they find out the boys had all ready met with the grandfather and now not only is the man dead but his housekeeper is missingWhen the entire family descends on the manor we uickly see that they are a cursed bunch Whether the painting actually was possessed by a demon or whether the fear was instilled deliberately these were some very messed up charactersTeresa who has some mysterious illness that we never found out exactly what it was was probably the only innocent in the bunch however I felt the characters weren t developed to the point that we knew or cared about any of them In the end it appeared greed was the motive for everyone s actions and whether they were all stark raving mad to begin with or became that way later isn t clear The tale is a fine idea but the character development I felt was lackingNetgalleyHanover Release January 09 2018
