Overview

In exchange for an exclusive story, feisty, flame-haired reporter Kendall O'Dell agrees to accompany 20-year old Angela Martin to claim her inheritance-a remote gold mining town in southern Arizona. But the bargain soon proves perilous as Kendall delves into the girl's past and unearths a family history of insanity, jealousy and violence that appears to have an eerie connection with the present. Is Angela the genuine heir, or a clever imposter? Was her father's recent death really an accident? And why was she never told of her deranged half-sister who perished in a mysterious fire eighteen years earlier?

Kendall's quest to find the answers leads her into a frightening labyrinth of events and she must risk her life to expose the shattering secrets that threaten to destroy the lives of everyone involved.

Editorial Reviews

Jean Teller
It's rare that a book captures my attention so quickly and as completely as did The Devil's Cradle. It will take all your will power to put this one down before you've turned the last page. And be prepared for all your guesses at whodunit to be flying out the window by the tale's end.GRIT Magazine
