Publisher Description

Something is wrong with the children…

Seven years ago, CORE agent, Dante Russo and his wife, Jessica, faced a parent’s ultimate fear…their ten-month-old daughter was abducted. With no clues, not a single sighting or trace of evidence to keep hope alive, the case went cold…until now. 

When the ghosts of murdered children begin to haunt psychic Celeste Kain, she’s forced to get involved in her most challenging case yet. The ghosts know who has Sophia. They know her kidnapper intimately. They know him as Daddy, and as their killer.


Using psychic visions and the clues the young spirits provide, Celeste and her husband, John, travel across the country, desperately searching for the girl and her kidnapper. The dead children have made their warning clear…find Sophia before Daddy kills again. 

To learn more about Dante and Jessica’s story, be sure to check out Ultimate Fear (Book 2 Ultimate C.O.R.E.).

Love love loved this book!!!

I have so many thoughts running through my head after reading this book I cant quiet them to think of what I want to write. This was a super creepy book but it also was heartbreaking and in the end leaves you feeling jubilant.

This book has been a long time coming. You know there is always that one book you've been waiting for in a series that wraps something up started many books ago. Sometimes your disappointed when that times comes – maybe it doesn't meet your expectations or what you thought should happen – but this book far exceeded anything I could have dreamed or even believed (this author is famous for shocking her readers).

I'm not going to give anything away about the story but I will say Celeste has come so far with her gift and what's she is able to do and it was great to have a book where her husband John was 100% supportive and knows that she is so much stronger with him by her side.

Love love loved this book!!!

Very Creepy – But in a YOU MUST READ THIS NOW kind of way

Let me start by saying this was my favorite Celeste Files yet. The author really pushed the envelope with this and it worked superbly. She layers in real investigative techniques and combines with the supernatural in a seamless, flawless manner. Her bad guys always give me the heebie-jeebies but this time, he was completely evil. And the ending? Let’s just say you will never look at birds the same again!
So, get a glass of wine, hide your Elf on Shelf and settle in to read this wonderful, creeptastic story!
