What happens when children are denied love and then left to their own devices? Follow Me into the Dark traces the unraveling of a family marred by perverse intergenerational abuse. Kate is a young baker whose mother is dying of cancer. Gillian is an oversexed, hyper-intellectual who looks like Kate and is sleeping with Kate's stepfather. Jonah is Gillian's odd but devoted stepbrother, who increasingly matches the description of the "Doll Collector," a menacing serial killer. With Kate flailing in her mourning and beating back unwelcome memories, snippets of her family legacy are revealed just as the Doll Collector's body count grows. A complex, dark expression of the deprived heart and the desperate lengths children will go to in order to create family.
