Excerpt:

Dear God!

How had it happened?

The how didn't matter. The important thing was to get to Mark, and leave as fast as possible. At least the Callahans would be out of danger. She'd get to a large city and hide. It wouldn't be easy. But nothing these past weeks had been.

Riding hard, she didn't slow Skye until they were at the barn. Once there, she jumped down and ran for the house.

Ignoring the rain, her soaked clothes, and the mud splattered from head to foot, she grabbed the screen door and went inside.

The house was dark and silent. She stood there a minute.

Something was wrong. She could feel it.

That warmth and comfort wasn't here now. Instead, there was a sense of foreboding. Tamping down the fear, she made her way through the darkness. The lights must have gone out, she thought, as she flipped a switch and nothing happened. Maybe Mark was asleep. Perhaps the face in the window was nothing more than a product of her imagination.

She passed the living room. The dim glow from the fireplace brought her nightmare to life.

He stood in the flickering light, a gun in one hand, the other covering Mark's mouth.

Mark's eyes were terrified. A quick glance showed Nellie lying on the floor.

Phyl's head swirled, darkness threatened. If he'd killed Nellie...her heart simply couldn't take it.
