About this title


A young woman is plunged into a nightmare of supernatural madness and violence as the birth mother Lori never knew reaches out from beyond the grave to claim her daughter's body as her own and to consign Lori's soul to eternal damnation

From Library Journal:

Lori returns from college graduation to find her parents dead, her home burned. In the wreckage, a daffy psychic finds an old college yearbook containing a photo that looks just like Lori. The "twin" is Priscilla Fairmount, who disappeared in 1968--the year of Lori's birth. Lori begins having nightmares and becomes convinced that Priscilla is trying to possess her mind. Under police suspicion for the fire and for the murder of her family lawyer, she receives help from her psychiatrist to find out who the mysterious Priscilla is. Although the story is interesting, most of the characters are two-dimensional. Lori is particularly disappointing: dependent on everyone else to solve the mystery, she herself does nothing but indulge in stream-of-consciousness wordplay. Not bad, but one expects better from the author of American Gothic ( LJ 2/1/74) and the film classic Psycho (1959).
