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 first couple were better, this one was not as good. Very expectable. I thought the way the old lady would die would be more bloodier and the book scarier. Guess you can't when the book is real small.
Another good quick read. While it was hard to except an evil handkerchief, the death scene was particularly gruesome. I liked the cliffhanger with Rebecca, but I long to lend the girl some backbone!
i wonder if the ending was what was supposed to have happened in the killers mind or if it did not play out the way he wanted. i believe it did not go the way he wanted.
I am mainly happy that Germaine and Clara Wagner were the ones who suffered in this one. Karma at work.
This series just keeps building to a climax can't wait to get to the end of story.
Not my favorite of the six-book series, but good
