WHEN IT COMES TO MURDER, THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME.
Aliens ... paranoid old ladies ... demonic possession ...haunted houses ... you name it. Fledgling nanny Janet Ayres can't quite believe this nutty Southern enclave or the hectic disarray that reigns in her employer's antebellum mansion, which also serves as a secret shelter for victims of domestic violence. Her one comfort is the family next door--Mary Ann, Ted, and two-year-old Eddie-who have just the kind of warm and stable relationship that Janet herself would like to have someday.
Too bad this happy home has been invaded by demons, and too bad Mary Ann is growing more jumpy and reclusive with every passing day.
Without sacrificing a scintilla of the wit and novelistic skill that her fans cherish, Deborah Adams spins out a mystery of truly horrific dimensions, a chiller about the secret life of one American family.
