Amateur biographer Margaret Lea receives a letter from reclusive author Vida Winter, summoning her to write Vida's life story. Up to this point, Vida has never given a true account of her life, toying with interviewers by inventing lutlandish life histories of herself. In her old age, she at last wants to tell the truth a bout her extraordinary life. Maragret is captivated by Vida's strange tale of the mysterious March family. But as a biographer she deals in fact not fiction, and she doesn't entirely trust Vida's account. As Margaret pieces together the story on her own, what she discovers is a chilling and transforming experience.

This chilling mystery is easy to read. The fast paced drama makes it a page turner that is hard to put down until one comes to the end of the book. Even then, it stays in ones mind pondering all the twists and turns . All mystery thriller fans should definitly put this one one their lists.

The Thirteenth Tale is very well written and combines the past and the present in a captivating manner. The author leads the reader down a pathway of intriguing events. The reader finds himself heading a certain direction, and then suprisingly another. The author paints the scenes and the characters with their deep emotions, in a superb and mysterious way, bringing the story to life. I was spellbound by this book and will be looking forward to more works from this author.
