After her sister’s strange death, a young woman finds herself in deadly peril

Annie Honeycut is one of the country’s most daring freelance photographers, known for her willingness to risk anything for the perfect shot. Working on an assignment about a mysterious house outside Denver, the site of a string of grisly murders a century ago, Annie needs just one more picture to make it perfect: a shot of the murder room, for which she must scale the wall of the creaky old Victorian. She gets the picture, but it will be her last. Annie is found the next morning on the house’s lawn, dead with a broken neck.

After Annie’s funeral, her sister inherits the camera. As cautious and sensible as Annie was wild, Nora is nevertheless intrigued by Annie’s final picture, which shows a seemingly human shape in the corner of the room. To solve the mystery of her sister’s final moments, Nora digs into the forgotten killing spree, and a house with secrets just as dangerous today as they were a century ago.


“[Allegretto] writes impressively in the tight-lipped school of prose that, handled well, can raise emotional bruises.” —The New York Times
