This chilling mystery thriller by the author of Rosemary’s Baby explores the thin line between fantasy and reality, madness and murder. Students Susan and Larry find themselves as guests lured to the crumbling Brabissant mansion by its dissolute caretakers. Struck by Susan’s strong resemblance to the owner’s long-deceased daughter Veronica, the older couple slowly persuades her to impersonate Veronica to comfort the confused sister, who believes she is still alive. Once dressed in Veronica’s clothes, the line between what’s real and what’s not begins to blur.
