Description
Gary Goshgarian's skill as a writer of supernatural suspense is on full display in this terrifying thriller combining Native American and Celtic mythology.Peter Van Zandt is a professor of archeology, trying to put the death of his wife behind him by immersing himself in a potentially significant excavation. On an island in Boston Harbor where a new casino resort is about to be built, workers have uncovered the remains of a peculiar stone edifice. The law requires that it be uncovered, but Van Zandt has little time to complete the project before construction begins.As a circle of stones eerily reminiscent of Stonehenge emerges from the ground, Van Zandt finds himself assaulted by disturbing dreams of the death of his young son, the burning of an accused witch at a stake, and a woman who seems to be his wife calling him from beyond. The discovery of a skeleton at the site adds a very real sense of menace that surrounds the project and his work.Soon the lines between this world and the next begin to blur, and along with them Peter's sense of reality. As his mind weakens, he becomes convinced that it is his wife who beckons him from the other side, and what she most needs is his ultimate sacrifice--his son.As Robert B. Parker says, The Stone Circle ?is storytelling at its best.' Gary Goshgarian has created a good man that could be every man in the grip of evil.
