Newbery Medalist Avi weaves oneof his most suspensefuland scary tales—about a ghostwho hasto be seen to be believed and must be kept from carryingout a horrifying revenge. The time is 1872. The place is New York City. Horace Carpetine has been raised to believe in science and rationality. So as apprentice to Enoch Middleditch, a society photographer, he thinks of his trade as a scientific art. But when wealthy society matron Mrs. Frederick Von Macht orders a photographic portrait, strange things begin to happen. Horace's first real photographs reveal a frightful likeness: it'sthe imageof the Von Machts' dead daughter, Eleanora. Pegg, the Von Machts' black servant girl, then leads him to thetruth about who Eleanora reallywas and how she actually died. Joined in friendship, Pegg and Horace soon realize that his photographs are evoking both Eleanora's image andher ghost. Eleanora returns, a vengeful wraith intent on punishing those who abused her. Rich in detail, fullof the magic of early photography, here isa story about the shadows, visibleand invisible, that are always lurking near.
