Modern Gothic Suspense from the author of the Vampire Legacy series.

Better off dead...

Laura Wagner is a mess. Her addictions to alcohol and prescription drugs have cost her a marriage and the custody of her two daughters. She hits rock bottom when, driving drunk, she backs her car into another vehicle -- a police cruiser. But a stint in rehab and the affectionate interest of Officer Mike Gallagher, the very cop she collided with, give her a start on a new life. Making it one day at a time is hard enough, but Laura is hearing voices trying to convince her that she'd be better off dead. When someone is found dead in the basement, it becomes obvious that more than Laura's inner demons are haunting her and her house. But can Laura find the strength to stay sober and subdue the malevolent forces that threaten her and everyone she loves? Could anyone?
