The psychopath: Released from prison after losing his sight and incarcerated in a once-deserted home at the edge of the woods, he is under constant electronic surveillance, his every move monitored by closed-circuit cameras.  There is no way he could possibly escape....

The parole officer: One of the few people in town who knows what is locked inside the isolated house.  Quinn Gallagher thought she was hardened to human evil until she looked into the sightless eyes of a child killer and felt a law officer's outrage--and a parent's nameless dread....

The mother: Moved to Dove's Landing after the breakup of her first marriage hoping to start a new life with her daughter and her new husband--a  hope that is devastated when eleven-year-old Abby disappears one ordinary afternoon.

The nightmare: Now a killer may be on the lose on the streets of the small Vermont town...preying on the young and the innocent...and the horror is beginning all over again.  And the only clues to his identity lie in the dark confessions of a madman...and in The House On The Hill.
