👁️‍🗨️...From the novel...🗨️


Gräfen stood incredibly tall by the fire, his shadow bending, black-hole black, where the ceiling met the wall.

“You should not run from me, my dear.”

He moved past the fire with unhurried grace, his cloying presence casting ahead of his body.  

“Leave me alone,” I begged of him.

“Oh, but I cannot,” Gräfen’s low voice trembled on the air.

How will Rachel survive this one?

"Just when you think the story has reached a moment of respite, another twist slams the reader from offside."  ~~Award-Winning Mystery Author, Gloria Ferris
