Every house has its secrets, some more perverse and horrific than others…
Suspense author Cathy Tremblay and her cable-installer husband, Mike, have just moved into a new home in West Kelowna, BC., where they get to experience nature at its finest. Between deer traipsing across the front yard and a “quailing daycare” in the back, they’re living la vida buena. Until everything changes.
First come the spiders. Then the rats. What comes next hurls Cathy and Mike into skin-itching chaos. They’ve seen all kinds of house pests before, but they’re not prepared for an infestation like this.
The payment can't be settled with money or favors. He only wants one thing. Me.
Every action gets a reward. A button. Once I fill his jar with three hundred and sixty-five buttons, he'll let me go. He'll let me walk away.
But I have to earn every single one. By submitting to the darkest, cruelest, and most beautiful man I've ever known.
** TRIGGER WARNING ** There are some dark and disturbing scenes of abuse and punishment.
