“… a discerning, empathetic look at intergenerational child abuse, aimed at waking up readers from all walks of life.” –IndieReader


“… a riveting fictional story exploring the dark subject of child incestuous abuse that plagues families at all levels of society.” –Authors Reading


In public, Jim Handler is a well-respected, small-town hero, and homicide detective who solved the case of the Will’s Creek Massacre. But at home, in the shadows, Jim’s childhood demons come alive to feast upon his family in the form of sexual, physical, and mental abuse.


But his three teenage children have had enough. They have devised a plan for redemption.


Empowered by the legal system’s lack of accountability, a judge who offers a quiet and meager plea deal to save face, Jim feels enabled to do whatever he wants to his family. With no one to keep Jim in check, this cycle of sexual and physical abuse is rampant. It is up to Nikki, Tyler, and Ally to end the evil that is devouring the Handler family.
