Summary
When a severed finger shows up on her doorstep in a seedy section of Las Vegas, Helen Taylor does not freak out. She's already crazy, as evidenced by her junk-stuffed house and its ever-growing population of cats. There's also Bobby, her long-dead husband. Helen talks to him regularly, and Bobby talks back. The finger and the brutal murder it reveals are more than a hoarding cat lady with a phantom husband can ignore. Helen's a suspect, and she ends up in jail. Summoned by the detective on the case, Helen's sister Pat arrives from Phoenix with two teen-age boys in tow. While Helen is AWOL from a mental facility, another gruesome murder is discovered. Pat, the boys, and the detective struggle to separate fact from insanity, but it takes power beyond the ordinary to bring the truth to light
