A dark evil has infected the Huggett house. Hyla and Lizeth Frontenac can feel it. What form has the monster taken this time? A deranged mother? A secret crime? Or maybe it’s a little girl, weaving a web of lies.
For nine-year-old Nelly Huggett has quite a story to tell. Maybe she’s just precocious, imaginative, and misunderstood… Or maybe that glimmer in her eye is deceit and cold vengeance. Maybe she’s the source of the powerful evil that consumed her entire family.
Wherever this evil comes from, it’s dragging Hyla into the abyss faster than she can chase the clues. And she may lose herself before she can save anyone else.
