Somehow Natalie had managed to pull herself together and carry on, but certain people wouldn't leave her alone... Her brother-in-law, the chief of police, insisted on sending patrol cars to "protect" her, and her sister-in-law urged her repeatedly to see a psychiatrist. The only person whose interfering she didn't mind was newspaper reporter Marc Clayton's. But the guardian eyes about her seemed to hinder her social life as well.

And some strange things began to happen. A murder which the newspaper refused to report, missing books from the library which appeared to form a pattern...and the discovery of a certain object which unlikely people have in common with her dead husband. Are these fragments of some larger scheme? As she wonders, an awful black presence begins to haunt her shadows, to threaten her very life, and then she knows that the attack is in earnest and she must somehow solve this unbelievable mystery or sacrifice herself to a monstrous killer beyond the powers of this world.

Natalie Windsor was not your ordinary small-town librarian. Nor did she expect, on her arrival in the quiet New England town of Oxrun Station, to be swept off her feet by a six-and-a-half-foot policeman and into marriage, only to be widowed a little less than a year later, after her husband was grotesquely murdered.
