The dark side of magic is where the Ragman dwells. Nobody knows that better than Eve. Desperate for a child, she called on that cunning conjurer eighteen years ago. Her daughter, Abbey, was the result.
After Abbey’s younger brother dies in a fall, Eve fears the worst about her daughter. Five years later, she still battles her guilt and grief over what happened the day she lost her son. Her husband, Richard, doesn’t understand. He doesn’t know the truth about Abbey; and besides, he has secrets of his own to keep.
But when terrible things begin to happen to those who get in Abbey’s way, Eve must overcome her own pain and loss and find the strength to deal with what she fears most — a teenage daughter she can no longer control and a past that could come back to haunt her in the most monstrous of ways.
"An unflinching portrayal of a family torn at the seams. Timely and tantalizing, C.S. O’Cinneide masterfully blends domestic suspense with a touch of black magic in this bewitching thriller about a mother and her bad-seed daughter. Rife with secrets and tension, you’ll be glued until the haunting last page." —Erin Ruddy, author of Tell Me My Name
"Full of secrecy and dark magic, C.S. O’Cinneide expertly weaves the differing voices of a grieving family into a story that is both creepy and atmospheric, with an ending that will haunt the reader far beyond the last page." —S.M. Freedman, award-winning author of The Faithful series, The Day She Died, and Blood Atonement
