From the back cover: A story of intrigue and suspense, Vandermeer's Curse is a first publication by M. Harris (who now uses M.V. Harris as his moniker in the release of the second edition of this tale). The author takes the reader not only into the world of business, but the world of the dark shadows. This is done by the introduction of Stanley Orion, a misguided soul who has a disdain for practically everyone he comes in contact with. This wrath is felt not only from the individuals who are employed at his dead father's company right down to the girl who works at the pastry shop. What Orion does realize is that the tables in his life are about to take a sharp turn when he meets Delphina Vandermeer, a woman with enough pent-up vengeance to out stretch his own meager ignorance.
