Thriller, mystery, paranormal, this excellent read covers all the bases! A chilling account of a woman who, against her better judgment, reaches out to a boy everyone has pegged as evil. Deborah, despite many setbacks with the boy, begins to trust. The story of what that trust costs her is positively breathtaking. I couldn't put it down!
Fantastic read. I also look forward to more of her work.

A woman reluctantly takes on the creepy son of her dead friend. Why would Deborah not just turn the kid over to the state to deal with? First, she has promised her friend to take care of him. Second, she sees in the boy something of herself, a part of her that she has learned to control. Nobody else can help this child, but will everyone around him come out unscathed? I don't want to give any more details because the answers will surprise you and make your skin crawl at the same time.
Excellent book by Ms. Ruek. I look forward to seeing more of her work.
