Members of Cynthia's family are dying one by one and she doesn't know how to stop it from happening. Cynthia records the macabre events in her journal as they occur and tries to come to terms with the fact that her old dolly, Samantha, has begun to haunt her dreams. Cynthia is on the cusp of becoming a young woman as her thirteenth birthday looms, but her past refuses to let her go as she battles her nightmares that foreshadow the death of her family members. Her old dolly, that her mother stored in the attic, has come out of the shadows and now inhabits Cynthia's frightening and prophetic dream-world. But are her nightmares merely products of her imagination, or are they something more than that? Something more real, more frightening, and more dangerous than any dream could ever be? From the author of Blood Related and Dreams of Thanatos

"William Cook tells a gruesome story with a sense of authenticity that makes you question with considerable unease if it really is fiction, after all."
– Graham Masterton, author of The Manitou and Descendant
“This man is simply scary. There is both a clinical thoroughness and a heartfelt emotional thoroughness to his writing. He manages to shock as well as empathize, to scare as well as acclimatize, yet beneath it all is a well read intelligence that demands to be engaged. I loved Blood Related. Ordinarily I hate serial killer stories, but William Cook won me over. He is a unique and innovative talent.”
– Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Flesh Eaters and Dog Days
