The horror she experienced could not be forgotten
Fiona Graves did not expect much from Corona Heights, just a quiet place to rest her head while she went about the business of rebuilding her life. On the surface, the setup was perfect: cheap rent, a great location, and total anonymity.

Cursed with paper-thin walls, the building kept few of its tenants’ secrets. But one secret had remained safely buried for years until Fiona’s strange encounter with her neighbor – an eight-year-old girl named Olivia – threatened to unearth it, and the unimaginable consequences inherent in its being.
As she wages a personal crusade to regain the love and trust of her estranged son, Fiona must also confront the ever-tightening grip of an addiction she has yet to overcome, a neighbor whose erratic behavior grows more dangerous by the hour, and a seemingly innocent little girl whose dark connection to Corona Heights threatens not only the child’s life but the life that Fiona is trying so desperately to reclaim.
