 Laura Kate O’Connell is a foreign correspondent working in Scotland when she gets word from cousin John that his father has been killed. How could this happen to her favorite uncle Wallace?  Laura Kate returns to Roston, South Carolina, to help her family deal with this latest tragedy.

It all started thirty-three years ago when one-month-old Roscoe Langey died in his crib. Then there were the unexpected deaths of Laura Kate’s father and brother in a car accident. After that, her cousin Will was swept away by floodwaters, and cousin Helen disappeared while on vacation with her two girls.

 Laura Kate is convinced that something sinister is going on and she is determined to find out. With the help of Denver, whom she is falling in love with, she takes up the job of getting to the bottom of these tragedies.

 LOOK AWAY FROM EVIL is a well-written book about the ultimate in dysfunctional families at their worst. I suspected every character because they all had skeletons in their closets, but I never figured out the real story.  I found the author’s words to be hypnotic and was held spellbound all the way up to the scandalous end.
