Something is happening to the children of Eastbury, Massachusetts... Something that causes healthy babies to turn cold in their cribs. Something that strikes at the heart of every parent's darkest fears. Something unexplained that is taking the children, one by one.

The door was slightly ajar.
There was no sound from within, and for a moment [she] felt an unreasonable sense of panic.
This is an uneasy read.
The first half of the novel is innocuous enough. A bit leisurely even. That is… until the trap is sprung and you realise that the false sense of security was exactly what the author was counting on.

I gave it 3 star because is not a bad book, it just isn't very appealing.
