Summary
"The bestselling inspiration for the chilling movie starring Patty McCormack and Nancy Kelly. What happens to ordinary families into whose midst a child serial killer is born? This spine-tingling tale investigates a mother's concerned suspicion surrounding several mysterious accidental deaths that all connect back to her eight-year-old daughter, Rhoda. Tremendously impacting the thriller genre, this masterpiece of suspense generated a whole crop of creepy kids, and it's as chilling, intelligent, and timely as ever before. Originally published in 1954, this National Book Award-nominated classic was adapted into film in 1956. With a new foreword. Vintage Movie Classics spotlights classic films that have stood the test of time, now rediscovered through the publication of the novels on which they were based."--
