Overview

A handsome stranger. A dead billionaire. A citywide treasure hunt. Tuesday Mooney&;s life is about to change&;forevermore.

Tuesday Mooney is a loner. She keeps to herself, begrudgingly socializes, and spends much of her time watching old Twin Peaks and X-Files DVDs. But when Vincent Pryce, Boston&;s most eccentric billionaire, dies&;leaving behind an epic treasure hunt through the city, with clues inspired by his hero, Edgar Allan Poe&;Tuesday&;s adventure finally begins.
 
Puzzle-loving Tuesday searches for clue after clue, joined by a ragtag crew: a wisecracking friend, an adoring teen neighbor, and a handsome, cagey young heir. The hunt tests their mettle, and with other teams from around the city also vying for the promised prize&;a share of Pryce&;s immense wealth&;they must move quickly. Pryce&;s clues can't be cracked with sharp wit alone; the searchers must summon the courage to face painful ghosts from their pasts (some more vivid than others) and discover their most guarded desires and dreams.

A deliciously funny ode to imagination, overflowing with love letters to art, from The Westing Game to Madonna to the Knights of the Round Table, Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts is the perfect read for thrill seekers, wanderers, word lovers, and anyone looking for an escape to the extraordinary.


A dying billionaire sends one woman and a cast of dreamers and rivals on a citywide treasure hunt. By the author of Bellweather Rhapsody. 35,000 first printing. Illustrations. Tour.

"From the award-winning author of Bellweather Rhapsody, a delightfully clever novel following one woman and a supporting cast of misfits, dreamers and foes as they race to win a treasure hunt inspired by Edgar Allan Poe, left behind by a dying billionaire" --
