If Jane Austen and Octavia Butler got trapped in a decrepit mansion in México at the edge of a hurricane with a savvy 1950s Mazatec socialite and they all wrote a book by candle light as the mansion creaked and moaned, this would be that novel. Instantly hooking, this horror-thriller kept me up way after my bedtime. Without being heavy-handed or lecturing, it also grapples with an enormous monster: eugenics. Atmospheric and macabre.
