Twenty years ago, a darkness rose up out of the blistering heat of the Arizona desert and descended upon the Walker family of Tucson. A personified evil, a serial killer named Andrew Carlisle, brought blood and terror into their world, nearly murdering Diana Ladd Walker and her young son, Davy. Now much has changed. The family has grown larger. There's Lani, the beloved adopted daughter -- a beautiful Native American teenager "kissed by the bees" and destined, according to Tohono 0'othham lore, to become a woman of great spiritual power. And now that the psychopath Carlisle has died in prison, Brandon and Diana Walker believe that their long nightmare is finally over.
They are wrong.
The monster is dead, but his malevolence lives on...in another.

A dying convict asks his cellmate to kidnap a girl and torture her to death because her mother blinded him while he was trying to rape her. On his release the cellmate abducts the girl, but she turns out to be as fiery as her mother.
