The Whitmans claimed that Harold Page was an insane killer. They had labeled him dangerous and the police believed them.

But young Edie Thompson didn't believe them. She thought he was innocent, even romantic, and that his strange ways were a mask for his terror.

And so she hid him in the secluded turret room, not really knowing if she was sheltering an innocent -- or setting the stage for another murder...hers.

He has been treated and released. And, he has walked miles to the home of his former wife searching for his child. When he arrives he realizes that it will happen again. After all, he has just spent time in a mental institution. Yes, the woman he loved and married has involved him in yet another violent situation. He didn't do it but why protest. Who would believe him? Only his therapist knows that he is incapable of murder. Edie Thompson looks into his eyes and believes that he is innocent so she hides him in a room called the turret room. Edie grew up with his ex-wife, knows the woman well and how she manipulates others to serve her.

One character after another shares their thoughts with the reader. The tale is told from many perspectives yet the reader hardly notices because the author is so skillful. Will he be convicted? Can he survive, knowing himself as his therapist helped him to see inside himself? This is another tale skillfully woven by the author to entertain the reader. Very well done.
