The Last Safe Place

The Last Safe Place


In the deepest, darkest midnight of her soul, Gabriella writes a novel, a horror thriller about demons... and then one of them crawls up out of the pages and confronts her face to face. A deranged, fanatical stalker who believes he is The Beast of Babylon from her novel turns up at a book signing and then comes after her to claim her as his bride. And to sacrifice her son, Ty, as an offering to their unholy union. When Gabriella narrowly escapes the crazy fan's clutches, she leaps into panicked action. She, Ty, Ty's grandfather, Theo--the crusty old stand-up comic called Slap Yo Mama Carmichael, and their golden retriever Puppy Dog--run for their lives, back to the only place in Gabriella's life where she ever felt safe. But once there, she discovers that facing the demons from her past may be harder and more dangerous than facing the one who stalks her. As Ty and Theo battle their own, personal monsters, Gabriella is drawn into a romance with man shrouded in mystery who carries a guilt she can't even begin to imagine. The stalker who hunts Gabriella and her family tracks them down and corners his prey as a full moon rides high in the night sky and lightning explodes on the mountaintop. Then all their lives and demons collide in a final, apocalyptic celebration of one man's madness. Gabriella's only hope lies in a mystery from her childhood the unexplainable power of 2,000-year-old tree. Is it strong enough to save them? In the suspense-filled, thriller ending, can a single, perfect bristlecone pine somehow determine the fate of them all?
