An ex-cop, Finn was left literally blinded by violence. The one thing he can still see is the body of his wife, Dani, and a crime scene that won't fade from his mind's eye. Now a professor, Finn never would have guessed that an isolated girls' prep school could be every bit as dangerous as city streets. Especially when he stumbles upon a local girl lying in a graveyard in the middle of a raging blizzard.

Finn may live in a world of total darkness, but it's about to get a splash of red. The memories that torment him still have the power to kill, and a group of innocent students has been put in harm's way by a pair of vicious criminals stalking Finn for unknown reasons. Secrets are creeping from the shadows around him—the kind that even a man with perfect vision never sees until it's too late. They're about to become terrifyingly clear to Finn—and it all begins with the scent of blood.

    Tom Piccirilli is a mystery to me. For starters, from which era of writing does he belong? Does he belong to the traditional epic horror era (Stephen King, Dean Koontz, F. Paul Wilson, etc.)? The Spla...

    This book is another example of how great of an author Piccirilli is. The story is solid and riveting. At the halfway point, things got so good that I couldn't put the book down. I was just getting of...

  • David Bridges

    First I want to say Picirrilli is great. This one started off a little slow for me but when it kicks in man it gets crazy. To me Piccirilli is a master of two distinct styles, horror and crime, and he...
