Dr. Caspian suddenly realizes that not only is Laura's life in danger from an age-old spirit...but Bronwen's as well. Another first-rate novel of horror by a masterful storyteller!

Have you ever felt the ache of absence all at once? As if a storm is raging on forever in the distance and although you seek shelter, the thoughts of getting wet are stagnant in the air. There is a chasm of words threaded together that go unsaid that are just as beautiful as those whispered sweetly in your ear, that are screamed at the top of your lungs, and those that escape at the edge of your breath as it falls before you. These words are our ache and our greatest joy. They are unspoken.
