Louise Joyner lives far from her family so when her brother calls out of the blue she knows something terrible has happened - her parents have died in a car accident and she must return home. When it comes time to clear out the family home to put it on the market, strange things begin to happen. There are footsteps when no one is around well, no one but the many homemade puppets that litter the home. As their situation gets worse, they realize that they must take extreme measures to finally be free.
This was a typical Grady Hendrix novel. There were lots of twists and turns that I did not see coming. He always tells unique stories that you generally won't see anywhere else. There is a bit more gore than usual for a Hendrix novel which surprised me but did not stop me from finishing this book. If you have a phobia of dolls, puppets, or being smothered by taxidermized squirrels then this novel definitely is not for you. All in all, I could not put this book down and truly enjoyed the moments I got to read it.
