THE SKULL RING
When the fire whispers your name, how do you answer? Julia Stone better get it right, or else.
Dr. Pamela Forrest is determined to bring Julia's memories to the surface, hoping to heal Julia's panic disorder. The therapist keeps returning Julia to a night twenty-three years ago when Julia was four. A night of hooded figures, strange chants, pain, and blood. The night her father disappeared from the face of the earth.
But the line between the past and the present begins to blur. Julia finds a silver skull ring that bears the name "Judas Stone" and her fellow journalist Rick O'Dell is investigating a suspected ritual murder.
Someone is leaving strange messages inside her house, even though the door is locked. The handyman Walter spends a lot of time in the woods behind her house. Her romance with her boyfriend Mitchell grows uneasy and cold. And the cop who investigated the mystery of her father's disappearance has followed her to the small Appalachian town of Elkwood.
Now she has a head full of memories, but she doesn't know which are real. As the shadows of Julia's panic grow larger and darker and the ring closes in, she needs to trust one of the men in her life.
And the wrong choice may not only cost her heart and her life, but her soul as well.
