A mother’s love is undying… and so is Dane.
After the state of Arkansas executes serial killer Dane Peters, the Rest Stop Dentist, his mother discovers that life is darker and more dangerous than she ever expected.
The driving force behind his ghostly return lies buried in his family’s dark past. As Ella desperately seeks a way to lay her son’s troubled soul to rest, she comes face to face with her own failings.
If Ella cannot learn why her son has returned and what he seeks, then the reach of his power will destroy the innocent, and not even his mother will be able to stop him.
Ella Peters thought she was going to live happily ever after when she married Phillip and gave birth to their son. Instead she sat back and watched the makings of a serial killer. As the abuse Dane suffers turns more and more horrific Ella seems desensitized to it all. When Dane is found guilty and put to death for his crimes that should have been the end of it. Instead Dane has other plans and Ella may have to face some justice of her own. Dane is back and he is coming home to momma. I didn't think I could ever feel sympathy for a serial killer, and yet in those years when Dane was growing up, I did. I'm not sure who is the worst villain in this story, the murderer himself, the father who made him that way or the mother who never lifted a finger to protect her son. Either way this was a hell of a story. I would rate it 4 of 5 stars.
