Overview

It wasn’t technically an exorcism, what they did to Clare. When the reverend and his son ripped her demon from her, they called it a “deliverance.” But they didn’t understand that Clare and her demon—known simply as Her—were like sisters. She comforted Clare, made her feel brave, helped to ease her loneliness. They were each other’s Only.

Now, Clare’s only comforts are the three clues that She left behind:

What People are Saying About This

Booklist


**STARRED REVIEW**
"Cajoleas builds a wonderfully macabre mood in his southern gothic novel, filled with economic ruin, witchcraft, religious zealotry, and grotesque moments of horror . . . Thoughtful, compassionate, and subtle commentary on faith, addiction, and grief is icing on an already captivating (and chilling) cake. Readers who like their horror on the literary side will love this."
