Ever since her parents' bizarre murder, Cybil Starr has been stuck with her horrible grandmother. Now, on the cusp of her fifteenth birthday, Cybil has a new problem. Lately, new abilities have begun to manifest themselves in spectacular and bloody ways. And worse, she can't control them.

And her father was one of them.
Now the prime suspect in the case, Cybil must use her unique knowledge of the crime to help find the real perpetrator or it's her head on the chopping block. And she has just three days to pull it off. No pressure...
