It’s been eight years since artist and single mom, Rebecca Underhill, was abducted and left to die in an old broken down house located in the middle of the dark woods. But even if her abductor, Joseph William Whalen, has since been killed, another, more insidious evil is once more out to get her in the form of the Skinner. The son of an abusive butcher, Skinner intends on finishing the job Whalen started but failed at. 

How is he going to get to Rebecca? 

He’s going to do it through her children, by luring them into the cornfield behind the old farmhouse they live in. 

Now, armed with the knowledge that the Skinner has escaped incarceration at a downstate facility for the criminally insane, Rebecca must face the most horrifying challenge of her adult life: Rescuing the children not from a house in the woods, but from the abandoned tunnels that run underneath her property. 

But the Skinner is watching Rebecca’s every move. 

Horrifying question is, will she live long enough to save the children? 

My Take:  This is the second book in a planned triology.  Reading the first book would be helpful but it is not entirely necessary.  I was intrigued by Skinner in this book as why certain people do what they do and others don't has always intrigued me.  There is a bit of language and talk of sex. There is also some graphic descriptions of what Skinner did to his victims and what other insane patients behavior in an institution.  There was enough things that weren't anticipated to keep you guessing as to if anyone was going to get hurt, live or  what.  This would be good for someone who likes to read horror books.  

I received a review copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion from Pump Up your book.
