Seven gruesome homicides.
Seven chances to save his daughter’s life…

"A roller coaster ride of thrills. The tension never lets up – do NOT read this at night because you will not go to sleep until the book is finished."
"The storyline for Scare Me is so well thought out and written. The believable characters facing such heinous but not impossible situations makes for chilling reading."
"The human connection family—constructed or biological—provides a sharp contrast with the technological connections that bind the characters, test the characters, and threaten to break the characters if the inevitable linkage failures occur."
