BOOM!

SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #1 introduces readers to a close-knit community rocked by a series of murders and the sudden appearance of Erica Slaughter, a mysterious figure who rides into town claiming she can stop the brutal murders turning their lives upside down.
But the local police and authority figures don’t know what to make of this dangerous outsider who claims to believe the local kids and their rumors of monsters in the woods. Can they trust this so-called “monster” hunter with their children’s lives? Or is Erica Slaughter an unhinged killer who’ll only bring more tragedy into their midst?
