A thrilling novel of an eighteenth-century New England town and a powerful family caught in the grip of an epidemic (The Boston Globe).

The year is 1796, and a trading ship arrives in the vibrant trading town of Newburyport, Massachusetts. But its a ghost ship--her entire crew has been decimated by a virulent fever which sweeps through the harbor town, and Newburyports residents start to fall ill and die with alarming haste. Something has to be done to stop the virus from spreading further. When physician Giles Wiggins places the port under quarantine, he earns the ire of his shipbuilder half-brother, the wealthy and powerful Enoch Sumner, and their eccentric mother Miranda. Defiantly, Giles sets up a pest-house, where the afflicted might be cared for and separated from the rest of the populace in an attempt to contain the epidemic.

As the epidemic grows, fear, greed, and unhinged obsession threaten the Sumner family-and the future of Newburyport.

'Rec' is not without flaws but it is a very solid and chilling horror film. 'Quarantine' is able to expand on several of the strengths in 'Rec' while falling into a few pitfalls of it's own. Both films are about a TV news crew taping a show about what a
