Warren Bascomb has lost his wife; his son, Ben Bascomb, has lost his mother. One believes her death was a murder; the other believes it was a suicide. Warren's medical license was suspended five years ago when his Dilaudid addiction was discovered. ...
Soon after, he entered into a pact with his son that has since kept Ben financially afloat and Warren supplied with narcotics. Their embittered agreement collapses, and in the process destroys one life, changes another forever, and drives both from the emotional and chemical shelters in which they hide. Set on the emotionally bleak outskirts of New York City, GHOSTFIRES, with stylistic power and psychological precision, lays bare a corrupt American dream - and a family with scores to settle.
