When a former neighbour plunges eight stories to her death in the snow, Julia Henry is convinced her previous landlords harassed the woman to suicide. But as she investigates, another dead girl turns up – with a connection to a series of rapes.
Julia and her husband put as much distance as they could afford between them and the landlords who put them through hell, and stories from humiliated tenants match Julia's own. She's determined to prove their tactics resulted in tragedy.
But the half-empty building is hemorrhaging tenants, the girl's boyfriend comes complete with a wife and daughter, and the best friend overdosed days after giving police their only description of a serial predator.
Now it seems someone wants Julia buried under the heaviest blizzard in thirty years, and one of her daughters is targeted for a brutal attack steps from home. The only way she can protect her girls and still live to see the snow melt is to expose the wrenching truth behind the rapes, the deaths, and the strangest absentee landlord ever.
