With rumors flying, eyes turn to Mills Chevern- a tumbleweed orphan newly arrived in town from the West. As the deaths continue and fear in town escalates, Mills is enlisted by Beth, an Orient native in retreat from Manhattan, to help her uncover the truth. With the clock ticking, Mills and Beth struggle to find answers, faced with a killer they may not be able to outsmart. Suspense until the last few pages !!!
