Owen Martell

Synopsis:

New York, June 1961. The Bill Evans Trio, featuring twenty-five-year-old Scott LaFaro on bass, play a series of concerts at the Village Vanguard that will go down in musical history. Shortly afterwards, LaFaro is killed in a car accident, and Evans disappears.

The Ghost Of The Mary Celeste

Author:

Valerie Martin

Synopsis:

In 1872 the American merchant vessel MARY CELESTE was discovered adrift off the coast of Spain; her crew were never found. A rather hard-up young writer named Arthur Conan Doyle hears of the ship and decides to write an outlandish short story about what took place. It causes quite a sensation back in the United States, particularly for sought-after Philadelphia psychic Violet Petra and skeptical journalist Phoebe Grant, who is seeking to expose Petra as a fraud. Then there is the family of the MARY CELESTE's captain, linked to the sea for generations and marked repeatedly by tragedy. In salons and on rough seas, at seances and in the imagination of a genius, these stories converge in unexpected ways as the mystery of the ghost ship deepens. Will the sea yield its secrets?
