I didn't like this at first. Howard, who is more or less the central character at the beginning, is a middle aged psychologist, a single father to a twenty-something son.

Ok gay gothic mystery about a small group of people staying for a week in China House, which has been empty for 20 years... except for a ghost? I didn't particularly care for any of the characters and could've definitely lived without the incestuous overtones in the story.
