The world is in chaos after a solar superstorm wipes thirteen months of memories from the earth's inhabitants and data from its computer banks. The superstorm also stole the lives of Molly McKinley's parents - and nearly her own, leaving her scarred and traumatized. Then she finds the books in an obscure shop, six slim volumes with her name printed in the back cover. The books give a disturbing account of one woman's unlikely bond with her stalker and her escalating terror with his sinister cat-and-mouse games. Each volume burns when she reaches the end, leaving behind nothing but the memory of the story. Molly can't stop reading despite the effect they have on her already disturbed twin brother, Magnus, as each book further unravels his sanity. The narrator's fear and horror become Molly's own, growing with every volume read, bringing her closer to a danger that seems overwhelmingly real. When at last she reaches the final book - will it be the last in every sense of the word?

About Sharon Gerlach

Sharon Gerlach was in training to be a ninja, but a dismaying lack of physical grace and balance -not to mention the inability to keep her big mouth shut - ended her ninja career before it had really begun. Now she writes. She doesn't write about ninjas because that's obviously a sore subject. But she writes about other really cool things and figures someone else will cover the ninjas. Life's really not all about ninjas, anyway. Sharon lives on the dry side of the Pacific Northwest with her husband (who must really be fond of her as he hasn't left her yet despite her ninja failings); her children and grandchildren (none of whom possess ninja qualities either); and three cats. Yes, you guessed it - ninja cats!
