I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
James Brogden does it again! He is one of my favorite authors. I’ve read the Hollow Tree and was perfectly creeped out and now this book…

Excellently flawed characters developed to perfection. Some write… he creates.
Buy his books! You won’t be disappointed.
