Mop as she is known wants closure on the sad tragic death of her mother and returns to the mansion of her now eccentric, cloistered aunt. The aunt who was very close to her and looked on her as the daughter she never had.\
The story is convoluted because the deeper Mop goes to solve the mystery of her mother's death, the more she unravels none of which are acceptable or palatable to her. Is digging deeper really what she wants to do.
The story starts off in one way and ends in another. Gothic, creepy and how power and position can hide secrets more effectively than anything else can.
Not an easy comfortable read, but a very intriguing one.
