Trust no one.

That’s the message Julia Stone fails to get early enough. And that failure sets her up for a web of misconception spun by everyone around her—her fiancé, therapist, neighbors and even the police. These false allusions have her believing her father was a member of a Satanic cult and was willing to sacrifice her as a child for the benefit of his unholy master.

These implanted beliefs have her haunted by terrible visions and subject to panic attacks. Forced to leave the city, she seeks refuge in an Appalachian mountain village and with a new therapist. But as she settles into a reporter job on a weekly newspaper the visions and a series of invasive incidents increase, intensifying the panic attacks.

It seems the only person who truly wants to help her is the one person everyone else warns her to avoid.

Nicholson has crafted a thriller which draws the reader in with plenty of suspense, good dialogue and an atmospheric setting. There are plenty of surprises along the way and a satisfactory conclusion. As an added bonus, this enhanced Kindle edition includes the author’s screenplay based on the novel.
