Dead Dolly Creek
would one day soon be just another western ghost town. Now it was still undergoing the slow and painful process of dying, the mines worked out, the young people gone away in search for a more promising future . . . but to Sharon Benedict it seemed as though the ghosts had already moved in. She came back to the village high in the mountains of New Mexico, the place where she had spent so many of her summer growing up days with May Dailey, her mother's oldest friend. Dead Dolly Creek had been a happy place, then . . . But now something was haunting the village, terrorizing the few people still living there . . . and preparing to murder! Sharon found the old woman hiding behind locked doors guarded by fierce dogs and nearly insane in her fright . . . and insanity that soon touched Sharon herself. For with her arrival, it seemed as though the evil in the village was about to be unleashed . . . for it was waiting for her!

A beautiful and successful young woman, Sharon returns to the frightening mountain village of her childhood - uncertain of her fateful future, and leaving behind the handsome suitor who wished to make her his wife. It is an accursed place where many have died mysteriously and others are paralyzed with fear, and where a strange woman can see the future in a deck of cards - but dares not disclose it. Now bizarre figures prowl at Sharon's door - and not even he who loves her beyond all others can shield her from what is to come.
