The only relief she finds is in her ability to move things with her mind; it’s her intimate secret, yet the breaking point isn’t far away. Her secret will get out, sooner or later, and perhaps even mete out revenge.
Lizzie Borden is in trouble – after killing her father and stepmother, she faces the scrutiny of officials, but what the law and the masses hurling insults outside her home don’t know, is that she had to defend herself from them.

She just hopes the noose doesn’t get to her first, before she can solve the mystery surrounding her family.
Thirteen tales, ranging from horrific creatures emerging from another realm, to the hellish secrets of a dingy bar. Monsters of all shapes and sizes take the spotlight, some deadlier than others.
