The second thrilling, chilling instalment in the Eden House Mysteries by best-selling author Bill Kitson. 'Babes in the wood, babes in the wood, who will be next to be covered in blood?' For generations, the children of Rowandale have recited that grim rhyme. Now those sinister words are becoming a stark reality ... The last of the influential Latimer family has died and the estate is in dispute. Racehorse trainer Barbara Lewis stands to inherit the prized Latimer racing stables, but not everyone's happy about that ... When Barbara's friend Eve Samuels goes to visit her, an intruder is discovered in the stables. The seemingly trivial incident sparks a spiralling chain of intrigue, violence, and murder. Barbara's ex-husband is found stabbed to death and she is chief suspect - along with a mysterious man who has recently been seen in the area. The local detectives are so inept that Eve and her boyfriend, Adam Bailey, investigate. Are the murders random acts of a deranged psychopath, or are more sinister forces at work?
