Death is coming for you…
And it’s wearing a familiar face.
Meet Rita Jackson, a child serial killer who loves to deprive her victims of oxygen. Hidden behind her youth and innocence is a monstrous killer who cannot be satiated.
At a very young age, her murderous tendencies were known to her father, who’s as addicted to death as she is. He fed it and encouraged the monster to grow.
She will steal your last breath and watch you die with a smile on her face in this chilling and captivating story.
Their house in Crossroads Farm will echo with the cry of her victims. Forty people will be held captive. Thirty-seven will die.
When the police arrive at Crossroads Farm, will Rita be amongst the living?
Or will she lose her life to her own madness?
Lullabies For Suffering
by Caroline Kepnes, Kealan Patrick Burke, Gabino Iglesias, John FD Taff, Mercedes M Yardley, Mark Matthews
Release Date: January 14, 2020
Addiction starts like a sweet lullaby sung by a trusted loved one. It washes away the pains of the day and wraps you in the warmness of the womb where nothing hurts and every dream is possible. Yet soon enough, this warm state of bliss becomes a cold shiver, the ecstasy and dreams become nightmares, yet we can’t stop listening to the lullaby. We crave to hear the siren song as it rips us apart.
Six stories: three novellas, three novelettes, written by a powerful list of talent, all featuring the insidious nature of addiction–damaged humans craving for highs and wholeness but finding something more tragic and horrific on the other side.
