The Devil's Cradle


In exchange for an exclusive story, feisty, flame-haired reporter Kendall O'Dell agrees to accompany 20 year old Angela Martin to claim her inheritance – a remote gold mining town in southern Arizona. But the bargain soon proves perilous as Kendall delves into the girl's questionable past and unearths a family history of insanity, jealousy and violence that appears to have an eerie connection with the present. Is Angela the genuine heir, or a clever imposter? Was her father's recent death really an accident? And why was she never told of her deranged half-sister who perished in a mysterious fire eighteen years earlier?

Kendall's quest to find the answers leads her into a frightening labyrinth of events and she must risk her life to expose the shattering secrets that threaten to destroy the lives of everyone involved.
