Description

"Don't let him in until I'm gone."

That's what Evie's mother whispers as the EMTs are whisking her away to the hospital.

When Evie arrives to look after the house in her mother's absence, she's shocked to find the place in terrible disrepair. While she cleans and organizes, she makes puzzling discoveries: expensive liquor that's not her mother's brand, a new flat-screen TV on the wall. Where is the money coming from?

Evie will find an unlikely ally in Mina Yetner, her mother's ninety-year-old neighbor, who has noticed mysterious changes to the neighborhood herself. As the two women dig deeper into the past few months of Evie's mother's life, a larger, more sinister picture begins to emerge.
