A novel by

 
Publisher's Weekly
This chilling follow-up to Brother Lowdown reveals many sordid secrets in the small Kansas town of Dumford, where a series of grisly killings involving infants and baby animals terrifies the residents. A prime suspect is Luraok Taylor, whose family is scarred by incest, murder and insanity. She returns to town after serving eight years in prison for murdering her father, but ex-fiance Ben Portlock, a police officer who helped put her away, still can't believe Lura is the serial killer. A more likely suspect is Portis Jackson, successful bank vice-president and sexual sadist who wants to kill wife Edie's baby, fathered by Ben's libidinous partner, Bryce McKee. Edie, Ben's sister, is desperate to escape her abusive marriage to Portis, who makes home porn tapes with his secretary Kayleen, the town minister's sister. When Kayleen uses one of these tapes to blackmail Portis, it leads to murder. Epperson interweaves these complex plot threads with panache, expertly pacing the narrative to culminate in a horrific confrontation between Edie and the fetus-obsessed killer that will haunt the reader.
