The House on Biscayne Bay

Berkley

As death stalks a mansion in Miami, the lives of two women intertwine as past and present collide.

With the great war behind them, many Americans flock to South Florida set on making a fortune. When a wealthy industrialist and his wife build Marbrisa, a glamorous estate on Biscayne Bay, they become the toast of the newly burgeoning society and appear to have it all. But in a town like Miami, appearances can be deceiving, and scandal can change everything.

 

Years later following the death of her parents, Carmen Acosta journeys to Marbrisa, the grand home of her estranged older sister. On the surface, the gilded estate looks like paradise, but she learns that nothing is as it seems. The house has a treacherous legacy, and Carmen’s life is soon in jeopardy…unless she can unravel the secrets buried beneath the mansion’s facade and stop history from repeating itself.

“A splashy, atmospheric thrill-ride!”
