The Blackstone Chronicles are short novels. Each novel in the series revolves around an object with a connection to the old Blackstone Insane Asylum. People in the town receive these items and horror and mayhem follow. I am a fan of John Saul horror novels, and these are good as well.
Oliver Metcalf found an old linen handkerchief with the letter 'R' beautifully embroidered in the corner, while sorting through medical records from the old Asylum in his father's attic. He gave the handkerchief to Rebecca Morrison, a perfect gift, he'd decided, for the woman he loves. As soon as Rebecca received the gift Germaine Wagner snatched it away from her to give to her own mother, Clara Wagner. Clara gets a very bad feeling from the handkerchief, as if she'd seen it before, but where?

The gift that brings horror in #4 of the Blackstone Chronicles is a linen handkerchief eith an ornate "R" in one corner. Oliver Metcalf gives it to his wife who has recently suffered a horrible family tragedy....but soon, it brings tears instead of drying tears.
