Descrizione

For Harlowe Upton-Jones, life has never been a straight line. Shipped off to live with her paternal grandparents after a mysterious cult killed her mother and father, she has grown up chasing the question behind the curve, becoming part of a tight-knit teen detective agency. But "teen" is a limited time offer, and when her friends start looking for adult professions, it's up to Harlowe to find them one last case so that they can go out in a blaze of glory.

Welcome to Spindrift House. The stories and legends surrounding the decrepit property are countless and contradictory, but one thing is clear: there are people willing to pay a great deal to determine the legal ownership of the house. When Harlowe and her friends agree to investigate the mystery behind the manor, they do so on the assumption that they'll be going down in history as the ones who determined who built Spindrift House—and why.

The house has secrets. They have the skills. They have a plan. They have everything they need to solve the mystery. Everything they need except for time. Because Spindrift House keeps its secrets for a reason, and it has no intention of letting them go. Nature abhors a straight line. Here's where the story bends.

    I liked it. An old feel to it sad in many ways
  • (4/5)
    In this Lovecraftian novella, a Scooby Gang-type group of investigators take on one last job before going their separate ways. The characters, other than the main one, are a little weak, but on the whole it's a very good read.Received via NetGalley.

    Wonderful Lovecraft flavored story.

    A group of mystery solving teens takes on one last case before adulthood and insurance runs out. But this last case is special, it seems that the haunted house they are staying at is connected to the orphaned friend in their group. Harlowe doesn’t know anything about her mother’s family but in researching it she finds out about a house that has a complicated ownership and a mystery about who owns the correct owner should be. Near the water in Maine a house sits with three families claiming ownership of it and the large amount of acreage. A large cash prize is awarded to anyone that can stay in the house until they find the original paperwork that will decide who is the correct owner. Everyone who has tried before has died of unknown cases. But this one is personal to Harlowe and the money will allow the other three to set up their adult lives and move on from teenage mystery solving. As the story progresses it becomes less Scooby Doo and more tinged with horror. The last chapter finally speaks the one word that confirms what a well-read reader has seen coming during the story.

    A Scooby Doo-like gang of ghostbusting kids is growing up and possibly breaking up, when one of them (the Velma) puts together one last big score—if they can find the deed to Spindrift House, they’ll make millions, but they can’t leave once they’ve entered and others have died in the attempt. Quickly things go full Lovecraft, with not!Velma’s heretofore unknown family secrets playing a big role. Grant doesn’t rely on her usual repetition/fairytale tics here, which I really appreciated; a brisk and different novella.
