Dear Reader, Love Vincent Zandri

Dear Reader…

After you read The Remains you were constantly telling me how I should continue the story of Rebecca and her unconventional family. You were still trembling from the thrills in The Remains. But also from the love story. You couldn’t get the image out of your head: Rebecca running from the madman who lived in the house in the woods, and who wanted to finish the job he started way back in the 1970s when he abducted she and her twin sister, Molly.

Now Rebecca faces a new threat in The Ashes. A man who lives in the cornfield behind her farmhouse and who talks to the children, trying to lure them into his trap. If you like thrills and some horror in your novels, Dear Reader, this book will be for you. It will take you deep into the underground tunnels beneath Rebecca’s farmhouse. It will take you down into a basement that is as dark as it is horrifying. But at the same time, you’ll experience the love Rebecca has not only for her new boyfriend, Sam, but also for her best friend and co-owner of The School of Art, Robyn Painter (that’s no joke). And have I mentioned how much Rebecca’s little boy, Mike Jr., has grown?

Rebecca also loves her ghosts, especially her late ex-husband, Michael and her late twin sister, Molly, both of whom she still talks to. Still trusts. But despite the love, Rebecca faces an enemy who is as horrifying, as he is real. A man called, The Skinner, who skins the faces of his victims so that he can use them as masks.

Will Rebecca be able to save herself? More importantly, will she be able to save the life of her son?

Here’s to good reading, and don’t forget to leave the lights on…

Cheers Dear Reader and thank you,

Pages: 277
Genre: Thriller/Horror/Romantic Suspense
It’s been eight years since artist and single mom, Rebecca Underhill, was abducted and left to die in an old broken down house located in the middle of the dark woods. But even if her abductor, Joseph William Whalen, has since been killed, another, more insidious evil is once more out to get her in the form of the Skinner. The son of an abusive butcher, Skinner intends on finishing the job Whalen started but failed at.

How is he going to get to Rebecca?

He’s going to do it through her children, by luring them into the cornfield behind the old farmhouse they live in.

Now, armed with the knowledge that the Skinner has escaped incarceration at a downstate facility for the criminally insane, Rebecca must face the most horrifying challenge of her adult life: Rescuing the children not from a house in the woods, but from the abandoned tunnels that run underneath her property.

But the Skinner is watching Rebecca’s every move.

Horrifying question is, will she live long enough to save the children?
