Holly Summers is a child welfare officer in Portland, Oregon, who moonlights for the local police department using her skills as a lip-reader (she also happens to be deaf). But while Holly is helping the police investigate a rash of disappearances, an angry father from one of her cases puts a curse on her that threatens the one thing she loves most: her daughter. Performer Suzy James' tones are honeyed and smooth here, and she does an excellent job creating separate voices for each character.

Deaf child welfare officer Holly Summers 'hears' by her amazing talent for lip-reading , a talent the Portland, Oregon, police are very happy to call upon in difficult criminal investigations.
Using her unique gift to help the police investigate the recent disappearances of a string of women, little does Holly suspect that one of the enemies she's made in her day job - an occupational hazard - has vowed a supernatural vengeance on her, and the horror begins when the one person Holly is living for is targeted: her precious daughter....

The book was predictable which made it dull. Graham Masterton books often have a dark ending. This book seem to be a statement on the child welfare system and it's workers with a horror story on the side. The story and characters didn't seem to mesh. The overall mood of the book was disturbing to me although , you are warned of this in the description of the book. I under estimated how much. I'm not buying anymore of the author books. This one put me off of his dark style of expression.
