Thomas Tessier – Fog Heart (St.Martin's, 2000, Original 1997, 319 p.)
Two couples, both skeptical and desperate, are drawn together by a medium named Oona, a fragile, beautiful young woman who knows things that no other living person should know. Is her gift real, or is it the sign of a consuming madness? Can she lead them all to important truths, or will they be trapped in the tightening web of terror and death?
I know next to nothing about Tessier. Only read some rave reviews, ordered one because at the time the avaiabilty of theses kind of novels seemed (or really did) to shrunk every quarter if you were not Stephen King and who needs a healthy backlist - or midlist-writers - anyway, and it wasn't important enough to later hunt it down. It went to the later shelf, where it still sits.
The cover is absolutly bland and boring, but it is St.Martin's Press, which is not NEL, but an respectable outfit. so what did I expect? So this is either a very good novel still waiting to be discovered 20 years later or ... not.
