But as the sinister shadows in the girl's mind begin to take shape, Alex discovers that the mystery touches a shocking incident in his own past.This connection is only the beginning, a single link in a forty-year-old conspiracy. And behind it lies an unspeakable evil that Alex Delaware must expose before it claims another innocent victim: Melody Quinn.

I didn't finish this one, although it is probably a good read. I just am not at a place in my life to read such a serious novel right now. Maybe I'll give it a shot later. I don't want to discourage anyone from reading this book because the beginning is very well written.
