Bag of Bones recounts the plight of forty-year-old bestselling novelist Mike Noonan, who is unable to stop grieving even four years after the sudden death of his wife, Jo, and who can no longer bear to face the blank screen of his word processor. Now his nights are plagued by vivid nightmares of the house by the lake. Despite, or perhaps because of, Mike returns to the Noonan's isolated summer home.
He finds the town, Sara Laughs, familiar on the surface, but much changed underneath - held in the grip of a powerful millionaire, Max Devore, who twists the very fabric of the community to his purpose: to take his three-year-old granddaughter away from her widowed young mother. As Mike is drawn into the struggle he falls in love with both of them and, is also drawn into the ghostly visitations of Sara Laughs along with his ever-escalating nightmares, and the sudden recovery of his writing ability.
