      A first novel.

    In the tradition of Hawthorne's short stories and the work of Shirley Jackson comes an extraordinary first novel--based on the legend of the Bell Witch--about a Southern family battling a murderous poltergeist and an even more haunting family secret. Robertson County, Tennessee, early 1800s. The respectable Bell family is quietly working its rural farm, when something horrific suddenly unleashes a reign of terror upon them and their entire community. The haunting begins with knocking on the walls. Before long, disembodied voices are heard whispering in the night, and spectral creatures are seen floating in the field. Then, 13-year-old Betsy Bell is brutally assaulted, and her father, John Bell, is violently tortured by an unseen force. The desperate townspeople, frantic with fear, gather to cast the demon from their midst. But a far more insidious evil lurks in the Bell home--more damaging and disturbing than the Bell Witch could ever be....
