This chilling mystery thriller by the author of Rosemary's Baby explores the thin line between fantasy and reality, madness and murder. Students Susan and Larry find themselves as guests enticed to the Brabissant mansion by it's dissolute caretakers the lonely Mackeys.Struck by Susan's strong resemblance to Veronica Brabissant, long- dead daughter of the family for whom they work, the older couple gradually induce her to impersonate Veronica briefly to solace the only living Brabissant, her addled sister who believes Veronica alive. Once dressed in Veronica's clothes, Susan finds herself locked in the role and locked in Veronica's room. Or is she Veronica, in 1935, pretending to be an imaginary Susan?

"Like being trapped in someone else's nightmare...jarring and (with a) surprising climax...a neat, elegant thriller." - Village Voice

The moving story of two very different women; Sara, the idealist who constantly feels the need to do more for her causes, and Callie, who prefers to coast along in life as a detached observer. Their growing relationship eventually leads to a kiss, very late at night on a West Village park bench, in public. The resulting gay bashing attack leaves one in a coma, and the other to deal with the aftermath and all it entails.

“To love is to declare oneself, and "Stop Kiss" should speak to anyone who has had to search deep within to find the strength and conviction to join hands with another. I can't remember when a love story has moved me more.”L.A. Times
