"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" -- Provided by publisher.
2012. Tuesday Mooney keeps to herself, begrudgingly socializes, and spends much of her time watching DVDs of old TV shows. Then 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. Teams from around the city vie for the prize: a share of Pryce's immense wealth. The clues involve knowledge, wit-- and the courage to face painful ghosts from their pasts. -- adapted from jacket

The Westing Game (1978) meets the supernatural in this high-stakes scavenger hunt through Boston. When Vincent Pryce dies (no, not Vincent Price, though both Vincents share a penchant for the extravagant and macabre), he, through his obituary, invites anyone and everyone to join in a game, which they can play by following a series of Edgar Allen Poeâinspired clues he's left in his wake. Tuesday Mooney, a professional researcher and puzzle-lover, decides to put her skills to the test. With an eclectic group of unlikely allies, she explores train tunnels, abandoned theaters, haunted houses, and more, making Racculia's latest, following Bellweather Rhapsody (2014), in many ways a love letter to the city of Boston. Though Vincent's puzzle itself is intriguing, so are the novel's characters. Some know more than they are letting on, some are keeping secrets about their past, and readers will be drawn in by their varied, personal reasons for playing, not to mention their wry interactions. A sharp, heartfelt story about loners working together for the sake of a shared adventure. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
