For several years, Ania Ahlborn has been constructing narratives whose concern with aberrant psychology frequently intersects the supernatural. The book includes an introduction in which Ahlborn discusses her college ambition to be a psychologist, a plan which was fueled by her interest in abnormal psychology, but which was derailed when a psychology professor told a class Ahlborn was in that psychologists did little to help the patients they were seeing. In the time before his capture, all that was known about the killer was a proclivity for shooting young women with long, dark hair, a preference that led women who fit the profile of his type to cut and dye their hair in an effort to evade his murderous notice. Taunted by a group of teenage boys on her walk home from the subway, she is equally frustrated by her living situation. She shares her apartment with her brother, Barrett, who is unemployed, spending his days reading and planning a novel that never seems to advance.
The sweltering height of the Summer of Sam. When Nell manages to finally garner some much-yearned-for attention, the unthinkable happens to her newfound friend. And then there were the other things…the darker things…the shadow that followed her home from the cemetery and settled into the corners of her home, refusing to let her grow up in peace. Now, after three years away from the place she's convinced she inadvertently haunted, and after yet another family tragedy strikes, Maggie is forced to return to the sweltering heat of a Savannah summer to come to terms with her past. All along, she's been telling herself, it was just in your head, and she nearly convinces herself that she'd imagined it all. But the moment Maggie steps into the foyer of her family home, she knows.
