Synopses & Reviews
The first time she spoke to him was at midnight.Seven-year-old Autumn Backman needed a hero. When she saw Special Agent Dillon Savich on TV after he?d brought down bank robbers in a Georgetown bank, she knew she?d found him. She called Savich, but she didn?t use the phone. They were burying dead people in my daddy's grave . . . they?re coming after us. Please help me. Who's they? Blessed, he's coming. Ethan Merriweather, sheriff of Titusville, Virginia, a small mountain town near the Titus Hitch Wilderness, goes looking for a missing little girl. Soon after he finds her, Ethan realizes that Autumn has brought him a huge problem ? a relentless madman who has the ability to control others simply by looking at them. And the madman is after her and her mom. It's Uncle Blessed, and he wants Autumn.When Savich answers Autumn's call, she tells him Blessed is from Bricker's Bowl, Georgia. Savich and Sherlock go to Blessed's home, learn about his brother, Grace, and meet their mother, Shepherd. Savich soon realizes the only way to stop Blessed is to ?cut off the snake's head.? Back in Titusville, Ethan, Autumn, and her mother, Joanna, are forced to hide from Blessed and Grace in the wilderness. Ethan knows the brothers will never give up their insane pursuit for Autumn. It's a race to stop the madness, or the madness will destroy them all.
Seven-year-old Autumn Backman has a gift: she can communicate telepathically with others. Not everyone, mind you, but with a select few with whom she shares a special kinship. When Autumn and her mother, Joanna, take her fathera (TM)s ashes to be buried in the family plot in Brickers Bowl, Georgia, she witnesses a horrifying sight: her grandmother and two uncles, burying a pile of dead bodies in the middle of the night. They head to Titusville, Virginia to seek the help of an old family friend, but Autumn senses they need assistance on a grand scale. Using her telepathic powers, Autumn calls a man shea (TM)d only seen on TV: FBI Agent Dillon Savich.
But before Savich and his wife and partner, Agent Lacey Sherlock, can get on-scene, Autumn and Joanna flee, fearing the retribution of her Uncle Blessed. A huge manhunt ensues, with Titusville Sheriff Ethan Merriweather racing to reach the girl before Blessed can get his hands on her. Blesseda (TM)s got big things planned for Autumn and her gift, and hea (TM)ll stop at nothing to force her into his growing army of exploited children. Savich, Sherlock, and Merriweather face their most elusive foes to keep Autumn out of harma (TM)s way a before ita (TM)s too late.
