"It is 1927. Young Peter Duvett has accepted a job as an assistant to the elusive portraitist Vienna Linn in the remote town of Churchill, Manitoba. Peter's life is about to change in ways he scarcely could have imagined. Across Canada, Vienna Linn has been arranging and photographing gruesome accidents for the private collection, in London, of a Mr. Radin Heur - theirs is a macabre duet of art and violence." "After a strenuous journey, Peter arrives in Churchill on the very night of his employer's wedding only to fall under the spell of Vienna's brilliant and beautiful wife, Kala Murie. Several months later, the uneasy menage a trois moves to Peter's native Halifax. Peter is drawn more and more deeply to Kala as he reluctantly comes to share her obsession with "spirit-pictures," photographs in which the faces of the long-dead or forgotten mysteriously appear - and as he sees more and more terrifying scenes come to life in the darkroom."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
