Returning to her childhood home in Louisiana, Allie ends up in foster care and is placed with Miss Bitty, an eccentric but kindly older woman who shows her a new direction and brighter future.
But Allie’s new life takes a devastating turn when young women in the area start turning up dead, and she discovers someone lurking outside her bedroom. As Miss Bitty grows inexplicably distant, Allie begins to wonder if death has found her yet again…or if it never really left her at all.
“A deliciously dark read… filled with intrigue, darkness and suspense, it takes you inside the mind of a serial killer and disturbed teen and opens your eyes to the horrors of both.” – Blendy Reads It
