Rebecca is the new administrator at The Tides nursing home. She is in way over her head (no pun intended) as she is too young and inexperienced to run the home. Also, her father Marshall is a patient there and he is being haunted by his ex-wife, Faye, who cases massive mayhem among the patients at the home resulting in deaths, etc., etc. If Faye a ghost? A demon? A powerful manifestation of Marshall's memory? Actually, I am not completely sure. That is never really explained. Also never really explained is what the drained lake behind the nursing home has to do with Faye, or anything else for that matter. I could be suddenly stupid or something, but I am not totally sure exactly what happened in this book, even after I read it. Don't get me wrong. The book was fairly entertaining and a fast read, but afterwards I was thinking, "huh?" Not up to Melanie Tem's usual standards.
