This masterwork of 19th. Century fiction is most extraordinary. The characters are uniformly unsympathetic and they are less than they think of themselves. In spite of this, the writing is exquisite and the novel deserves all of its accolades for its skewering of society.

As a gift for her husband, Alyssa Bradford hired Eric Shaw to make a documentary about her father-in-law, Campbell Bradford, a 95-year-old billionaire whose past is wrapped in mystery. Eric takes the job knowing very little about the man's past, just the name of his hometown and an antique water bottle he's kept his entire life. In Bradford's hometown, Eric discovers an extraordinary history, including a glorious domed hotel and hot springs known to cure everything from insomnia to malaria. As Eric experiences frightening visions, he discovers that something besides the hotel has been restored--a long-forgotten evil that will stop at nothing to regain its lost glory.
