  • 'Seduction' by M.J. Rose: It just had to be handwritten

    M. J. Rose's Seduction has just about everything a thriller fan could wish for: reincarnation, spiritualism, Druids, Jungian psychology, even perfumery. At the center of the tale is the great Victor Hugo, and even Satan himself figures prominently. The novel has scenes set in the present, in the 19th century, and in prehistoric times.
