Summer in South Carolina – a time of ripe peaches, crackling bonfires, trips to the lake, and the rural legend of a creature known as the Lizard Man.
This year, a very real monster is lurking about.
The victims all have one thing in common – they share their names with plants.
Soon it becomes apparent that seventeen-year-olds Dusty Miller and Nandina Bush may be next on the killer’s list.
“That was when I realized that the red I saw in the driveway wasn’t blood. It was a scattering of rose petals.
Deep down, I knew, right at that very moment, that what all of us had been afraid of for the past several months had already happened.
I knew that the serial killer had finally made his way to Crow County.” – Dusty Miller
