Now, twenty years later, the murders have started again, and the secrets of the past, left buried for so long, must be uncovered in order to stop this new horror.

Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Leo King has always had a taste for the gothic side of life, from the tragic romances to the cast-iron tracery to horrors lingering in the shadows. Growing up, Leo enjoyed ghost stories, murder mysteries, and black humor. After leaving New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Leo settled in Houston, Texas, and now writes stories with a dark flavor and a sardonic look at the human condition, hoping he’s controversial enough to make his readers think.
