It is about 2 sisters written alternately from the point of one sister - Penelope - and from the point of the other sister (Melanie)' s boyfriend, Bodie. Both of these characters are very likeable as always with Laymon.
I found this book stange as it seems more of a mystery thriller than a horror, the plot being of combination of Penelope being increasingly afraid and paranoid of some obscene phone calls she recieved and Melanie, Bodie and Penelope trying to find out how the girls' father ended up in hospital after a hit-and-run (as Melanie suspects their step-mother and her lover).
Slightly different from Laymons usual style but a very good and enjoyable read, with an interesting twist at the end.
