Ghost Song will scare you, titillate you, and keep you turning pages until you find out exactly what happens to Toby Chance, a successful songwriter who eerily disappears in 1914. He is inextricably connected to the Tarleton Music Hall, the "ugliest building Robert Fallon had ever seen." Both the Tarleton and Fallon, a surveyor, playing key roles in this latest by Rayne.

Dark shadows lie down every corridor, and just as many mysterious characters: the disturbed Shona Seymour; obsessive Caley Merrick; and Flora and Hal--Toby's parents--who may themselves be hiding a secret or two.

There are things seen and unseen as Fallon discovers a wall in the building's basement that shouldn't be there. What's behind the wall--and in fact behind the history of the Tarleton--unfolds in a carefully scripted plot. Of course there's a ghost, and who the cipher is and why it's there make for a delightful read.

Originally published on Curled Up With A Good Book at Steven Rosen, 2012
