Description

New York Times bestselling author Wendy Corsi Staub returns to Mundy's Landing--a small town where bygone bloodshed has become big business.

Hair neatly braided, hands serenely clasped, eyes closed, the young woman appeared to be sound asleep. But the peaceful tableau was a madman's handiwork. Beneath the covers, her white nightgown was spattered with blood. At daybreak, a horrified family would discover her corpse tucked into their guest room. The cunning killer would strike again . . . and again . . . before vanishing into the mists of time.

A century ago, the Sleeping Beauty Murders terrified picturesque Mundy's Landing. The victims, like the killer, were never identified. Now, on the hundredth anniversary, the Historical Society's annual "Mundypalooza" offers a hefty reward for solving the notorious case.

Annabelle Bingham, living in one of the three Murder Houses, can't escape the feeling that her family is being watched--and not just by news crews and amateur sleuths. She's right. Having unearthed the startling truth behind the horrific crimes, a copycat killer is about to reenact them--beneath the mansard roof of Annabelle's dream home . . .
