Blind ambition drives nascent novelist Art Chessman to ask literary agent Lucille Belzar for help in getting published. She looks him over as if he is tonight’s special served in a light cream sauce and, in a bizarre candle lit ceremony in her Greenwich Village home, signs him to a contract that binds him to her for life – and beyond.
Molly Greyson, a young, attractive and ambitious reporter, snags an interview with Art during which Lucille phones and invites Molly to dinner. Art insists that Molly decline the invitation, but Molly, a hard-headed realist, refuses to accept that Lucille is a witch. By the time tragic events force her to accept the truth it is almost too late. Art and Molly join forces in a struggle that will end in a fierce and deadly confrontation with Lucille and her minions in the eerie setting of an abandoned nursery school. (211 pages)
