"Then something did hurt. He could not see, but he knew they were cutting open his throat. The image of it made him shudder, and he hoped he wouldn't be sick. Then they began on his stomach. Something cold rippled in and out of his stomach. The old man next door coughed and gagged. Wormwood's mind chased the thought that had been arrested by his first fright. "Winners win," he thought, then he died.

Product Description
From Author Robin Mahle comes a thrilling new tale of the choices we make in our lives, the consequences of our actions and if our fate could ultimately be changed by altering a single decision.


In memory of a dear friend who had been taken too soon, they decide to honor a wish that was left unfulfilled. The Serenity resort, carved into the stunning red rock mountains would be the place to celebrate the life of their beloved Diane. And to allow reflection on their own lives, Maggie, Rachel and Susan thought this would be the perfect getaway.

But the resort holds an ancient and deadly secret, one that employee, Tony DeLuca, tries hard to ignore. It is only when Susan comes to him after a frightening and unexplained event, that he’s left with little choice but to face it head on.

Warnings of what will come to pass soon arise from a most unexpected source, delivered by one who is compelled to help.
