Publisher's Summary

“This thought-provoking tale makes a strong argument for letting go of past pain.” (Kirkus Reviews)

As a child Jimmy Lansford and his sister Kelly suffered crushing poverty, their father’s unexplained and frightening suicide, and their mother’s constant abuse and cruelty. Having grown to be a successful adult, Jimmy must contend with the sudden re-emergence of memories from his childhood in Oklahoma and unexplainable events occurring inside his own home. Is it more than memories that haunt Jimmy? Did his parents suffer from mental illness and addiction, or were they possessed by something even worse - and has that presence arrived to take Jimmy? 

The first horror novel from acclaimed author and journalist Dustin McKissen explores the nature of hauntings, the ghosts from our past that haunt our present, and the unbreakable bond between siblings who learn early on they can only rely on each other.

So distracting

The narrator of this book has the strangest voice inflections. He sounds just like a robot. It was so distracting, that my husband gave up listening to this book. I finished it just because I thought the story was pretty good, but the narrator ruined this book for me.
