Alfred Boote, a retired business executive, college professor, and market research consultant, has completed his newest book “House of Dead Dreams”: a gripping and potent work of modern fiction with twists and turns that make this enthralling page turner an engrossing obsession from start to finish.
On how to describe the book, its message, and its characters, author Alfred Boote said, “The book is about a young, upper middle class family from the city who dreams of owning a house in the country. They find their dream house and proceed to buy it. However, their dreams are shattered when they become entangled in a series of incidents involving the former owners. It’s a novel of suspense.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Alfred Boote’s suspenseful novel is a spine-tingling work that grabs hold of the reader with its intricate plot line and demands to be read.
Jeff and Tracey Corbett decide to move out into a suburban home from their posh apartment in Boston after their son was held hostage by a fleeing cat burglar—but they are wrong. Finally finding a home in Eastford, they find themselves in jeopardy in the hands of their house’s previous owners, the Gosses, who have an unfinished business: to retrieve a notebook that would incriminate them to decade-old unsolved art crimes. The Gosses, desperate to keep their secret buried, will try their best to recover it. With it lies the preservation of the family of Paul Gosse, an electrical engineer with a PhD and a protective father and husband to his two strange sons and deranged wife. Trespassing, intimidation, and murder—instead of safety—await the Corbetts in the Gosses’ house of dead dreams.
