Dead girls walking / Sami Ellis.

Ellis, Sami, (author.).


"Temple Baker knows that evil runs in her blood. Her father is the North Point Killer, an infamous serial killer known for branding his victims. He was the talk of countless true crime blogs for years. Some say he was possessed by a demon. Some say they never found all his victims. Some say that even though he's now behind bars, people are still dying in the woods. Despite everything, Temple never believed that her dad killed her mom. But when he confesses to that crime while on death row, she has no choice but to return to his old hunting grounds and try to find the body to prove it. Turns out, the farm that was once her family's home has been turned into an over-night camp for queer, horror-obsessed girls. So Temple poses as a camp counselor to go digging in the woods. She tries her best to fit in and keep her true identity hidden. Then a girl turns up dead in the woods, and Temple fears that one of her father's "fans" might be mimicking his crimes. As she tries to uncover the truth and keep the campers safe, she realizes that there may be something stranger and more sinister at work--and that her father may not have been the only monster in these woods" -- Book jacket.
