Selena St.George is the daughter of Joe St. George and Dolores Claiborne's daughter

I would recommend this book to an individual who has an interest in mysteries. This book provides plenty of suspense, scary moments, and definitely a great ending. Even if someone is not really into mystery books, I would still highly recommend that they read this book!
