From the Richard Laymon Kills! website:
Leigh is young, rebellious and beautiful - and she yearns for a summer of excitement by the lake. Maybe she'll find it in the arms of the handsome boy who rows her out to the abandoned beach house. Or maybe she'll stumble into a legacy of terror which will shatter her life...
Eighteen years on, Deana has no knowledge of her mother's troubled past and not that much interest. She just wants to make out somewhere cool with her boyfriend - to let her hair down and live a little. If only living were that simple. But that summer at the lake casts a long shadow. And when the horrors of the past meet the perils of the present, both mother and daughter are plunged into a nightmare of blood and terror from which there is no escape.

One of the strange things about this book is that Laymon didn't kill off at least one of the main characters. I get so used to not getting too attached to them because I know at least one will die. No main character choked here! Of course, there were so many moments when I just had to ask "WTF???" The biggest annoyance/flaw for me here was right after Leigh gets back from Mace's place and figures out he's a psychopathic killer, not to mention Deanna's uncle... she goes home and tells Deanna all about it, then gets the call from work telling her there was a major situation. Knowing there is a killer out there after her daughter, she leaves her home alone while she runs to the restaraunt?? Ok, I let my steam out, I'm totally over it. I did love the ending of this one. The little wrap-up written by Deanna was a nice touch, and felt a bit emotional to me.
