About the Book

If you are a reader who enjoys novels of suspense, then surely you will find this one to be a rip-roaring good read. There are enough red herrings, enough twists and turns, to keep one guessing until the very end. So, hang on to your seat and enjoy the ride!

The premise here is simple. Thirteen years ago, six teenage girls who had formed a secret club called the Six of Hearts, decide to let loose, drink, and dabble in a psuedo satanic ritual in a deserted farmhouse in Wheeling, West Virginia. Before the night is over, one of them ends up dead. The surviving five swear to a pact of secrecy to never reveal what really happened.

Thirteen years later, one of them dies a violent death at the hand of an unknown person who leaves behind a clue that those who were members of the Six of Hearts club are at risk. Laurel Damron, a flower shop owner and one of the club members, begins to receive chilling mementos which can only mean one thing: that she, too, is marked for death. One by one, all the remaining club members claim to have received frightening mail which lead them all to the same conclusion as Laurel.

Who will be next, and who is responsible for this? That is a question upon which the reader may well ponder, as the reader sifts through the byzantine twists in the plot. Gripping and absorbing, this novel is sure to hold the reader in suspense until the very end.
