Available At: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/319370
In the 1970s in rural central Florida, Roy Vega and his two younger brothers, Ricky and Eddie, live their lives dominated by their mother, Bella—a serial killer. With her young boys along for deception, Bella drives the local highways trolling for young female runaways who feel safe accepting a ride from a woman with three kids—young girls who will star in Bella's "rituals."
"I love my mother," writes Roy Vega, "at least I love one version of her. I'm scared of the other. This isn't how I envisioned my life, but I don't know any different. I'm probably doomed, but I hope my little brother Eddie is still young enough to escape and have a normal life. It may be too late. He's witnessed too much horror and is already developing a talent from Bella's "training." My uncle Dupree has never tried to control her, but he has his own problems—a bizarre obsession to amputate his own leg. I'm trying to get up the nerve to leave. I have money saved up and a bag packed. The only thing holding me back is getting Eddie out with me. If she catches me, I may disappear like her husbands."
