A haunting novel from the master of horror, in the popular tradition of Stephen King and Dean Koontz
'If you've missed Laymon, you've missed a treat' Stephen King

Penelope Conway is even more stunning than her sister ... but her looks have attracted an obscene caller.
All three are drawn into a nightmare that is fired by sex and haunted by blood.
