In this tense gothic thriller from award-winning author Douglas Clegg, Julie Hutchinson is driven to the edge of sanity when a brutal murder ignites a series of dark, erotic psychic invasions at her home.

Julie Hutchinson mentally unravels after the brutal and mysterious murder of her husband, Jeff, in this stand-alone tale full of subtle suspense, inventive twists and credible characters. Julie has erotic nightmares and hideous hallucinations while slowly trying to piece together the decades-old puzzle involving her husband’s past….The book’s final sentence is guaranteed to unnerve readers and leave them wanting more.”
