Keith Rommel's fourth installment in the Thanatology Series.
The past. A little girl is nearly kidnapped. A wild man runs loose, terrorizing a neighborhood. An older sister stops at nothing to protect her younger sibling from outsiders. The present. A woman sits in a prison cell, left to rot alongside a ruthless tormentor on a mission to break her. But, little does she know, the prison holds more insidious monsters than the beastly cellmate who steals her food and trades away her belongings for seemingly irrelevant trinkets. The past. Secret murders. A clandestine friendship. A broken pact between sisters. In an effort to cover up a string of devious acts, an unlikely coalition unites to bury their shared dark past. The present. A woman continues to be tortured by her mocking bunkmate, as well as by her own past—and all the things she can't recall about it. What has she done? Why is she here? Where is she? As she ponders and pieces together the mysteries of her history, she traverses a place that incarcerates her not only physically but also forces her deeper into the prison of her own mind.
