Eden was its name. “An alternative school for happy children.” But it closed in disgrace after a student’s suicide. Now it’s a care home, its grounds neglected and overgrown, and its only neighbor Gloria Harkness. Her son lives there, lighting up her life and breaking her heart each day.
When Gloria’s childhood friend turns up at her door, she doesn’t hesitate before asking him in. A girl from Eden is stalking him, has goaded him into meeting her at the site of the suicide. Only when the dead begin to speak, it’s murder they say.
