Dark Places

ibby Day was just seven years old when her older brother massacred her family while she hid in a cupboard. Her evidence helped put him away.

When she is offered $500 to do a guest appearance, she feels she has to accept. But this is no ordinary gathering.

Libby must delve into her family's past to uncover the truth - no matter how painful...
