The Night Ocean Hardback
Marina Willett has a problem. Her husband, Charlie, has become obsessed with H.P. Lovecraft, in particular with one episode in the legendary horror writer's life: In the summer of 1934, the 'old gent' lived for two months with a gay teenage fan named Robert Barlow, at Barlow's family home in central Florida.
Were they friends - or something more? Just when Charlie thinks he's solved the puzzle, a new scandal erupts, and he disappears.
The police say it's suicide. Marina, a psychiatrist, doesn't believe them. A tour de force of storytelling inspired by Lovecraft and his gang.
