|About the Book|
Diddle Diddle dumpling, poor young John, began the macabre Mother Goose rhyme that arrived on Gail Richards doorstep. Killed in the street, his life-blood gone. A tragic accident had almost cost Gail her life - and had caused the death of a teenage boy. It was only with the care and attention of counselor Curtis OMallory that she was beginning to forget the past. One shoe off and one shoe on, But along with the rhyme came a gaily wrapped package, and the soiled sneaker inside was a grim reminder to Gail that there was someone who couldnt - and wouldnt - forget. Locked windows, bolted doors and Curtiss arms were no protection against the faceless fiend whose chilling presents - a battered doll, a sheaf of dead roses - proved her tormentor wouldnt rest until Gail was...Dead in the street, like poor young John.
