For a while, bestselling horror author Dennis Shore felt like he had it all: career success beyond his wildest dreams, a wife he adored, a beautiful teenage daughter and a lovely home. His dark, horrific thrillers repeatedly captured the number one spot and quickly hit the silver screen. Life was good. And then the crash. Lucy, his beloved wife, died of cancer. Audrey, his daughter, left for college. Now writer’s block wraps itself around Dennis’s imagination, strangling it until nothing is left. And alone in his big Victorian house, with a publishing deadline days away, Dennis makes a bad choice --- a choice that will bring his own terrifying tales crashing into his world.
