Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims--a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story--and survive this homecoming.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5★ by 2reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by This is certainly not a light read. It is very dark and disturbing at times, but I absolutely could not put it down. I definitely recommend this book but be warned it is not a beach read. 12/19/2012
