One day Rylee comes home from school to find the most horrifying thing imaginable -- her father dead, with a knife through his heart, and a key clutched in his hand. Her mother's purse is on the counter, but she appears to be long gone. A message in blood is written on the floor . . . RUN. With her brother in tow, Rylee begins a dark journey that will uncover horrific and chilling crimes and lead her to an unexpected and gruesome discovery and who is behind these horrific crimes.
