Days before Halloween, the vacant house across the street from Pepper is sold. The new homeowner moves in. Distrust rises. Jealousy festers.
About the same time, a disturbing young man becomes obsessed with Pepper. But he’s not the only one obsessed with her.
A prominent woman in the community disappears without a trace, foul play suspected. Police have no leads. But Pepper believes she does, driving her to investigate.
As Halloween day approaches, more women disappear and gruesome discoveries are made.
Pepper’s curiosity draws her deeper and deeper into danger. Life or death danger. Just when she thinks she’s triumphed, a violent encounter she never saw coming changes everything. Perhaps forever. Will Pepper survive Halloween or become another victim in the countdown to murder?
