John Langan Synopsis: House of Windows is a standalone novel by John Langan. When a young writer finds himself cornered by a beautiful widow in the waning hours of a late-night cocktail party, he seeks at first to escape, to get back to his wife and infant son. But the tale she weaves, of her missing husband, a renowned English professor, and her lost stepson, a soldier killed on a battlefield on the other side of the world, and of phantasmal visions, a family curse, and a house – the Belvedere House, a striking mansion whose features suggest a face hidden just out of view – draws him in, capturing him. What follows is a deeply psychological ghost story of memory and malediction, loss and remorse.
