Summary
Un original relato de fantasmas, en una edición ilustrada por Carmen Segovia. Los avatares de la vida han llevado a la protagonista a trabajar de lectora de auras en Spiritual Palms, un dudoso negocio de artes esotéricas. Un día entra en la tienda Susan Burke, una mujer adinerada y probablemente infeliz con una historia dramática. Pero cuando la "vidente" visita la sombría mansión victoriana que ha originado los terrores de Susan, se da cuenta de que ha llegado la hora de creer en fantasmas. Y no ayuda la actitud del hijastro de su clienta, el adolescente Miles, de modales muy inquietantes. Los tres entablarán una batalla diabólica para averiguar cuál es el origen del mal que se cierne sobre ellos. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Gillian Flynn's Edgar Award-winning homage to the classic ghost story, published for the first time as a standalone. A canny young woman is struggling to survive by perpetrating various levels of mostly harmless fraud. On a rainy April morning, she is reading auras at Spiritual Palms when Susan Burke walks in. A keen observer of human behavior, our unnamed narrator immediately diagnoses beautiful, rich Susan as an unhappy woman eager to give her lovely life a drama injection. However, when the "psychic" visits the eerie Victorian home that has been the source of Susan's terror and grief, she realizes she may not have to pretend to believe in ghosts anymore. Miles, Susan's teenage stepson, doesn't help matters with his disturbing manner and grisly imagination. The three are soon locked in a chilling battle to discover where the evil truly lurks and what, if anything, can be done to escape it. "The Grownup," which originally appeared as "What Do You Do?" in George R. R. Martin's Roguesanthology, proves once again that Gillian Flynn is one of the world's most original and skilled voices in fiction
