From the Back Cover
THE SIN OF THE FATHER WILL BE VISITED UPON THE SON
22 CHILDREN DIE IN
Fire under Probe
Usher, 16, to be Questioned
My sister died that day. I wanted to ask her about it. I wanted to know what she saw, what she felt, what it was like to die, but she just looked away from me and said nothing.
Twenty-five years later she is still calling her killer in the middle of the night, but now I see a different mischief in her eyes. More than mischief: malice. She has a new plan for revenge… and a new subject: the killer's sixteen-year-old son.
Robert Cormier once again shows himself a master of suspense in this chilling novel.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
About the Author
Robert Cormier was the author of such important teen books as The Chocolate War, I Am The Cheese, The Bumblebee Flies Anyway and After The First Death. He was born in Leominster, Massachusetts, describing himself as “a skinny kid living in a ghetto-type neighborhood wanting the world to know that I existed.” When his own children were small, he worked as a newspaper reporter and wrote at night. He used to write a story over and over until he was satisfied. He wanted to make his stories as true as possible, yet censors often disliked his books. Robert Cormier passed away on November 2, 2000.
