“Narrator Traci Odom’s use of folksy accents perfectly sets the scene for this horror audiobook. Odom’s steady pace enhances the atmospheric tone of the narrative. Her emotional connection with Kate and Judith, along with her warm and appealing voice, keep listeners hooked to the legend surrounding the body found in the blackgum tree so many years ago.” – Audiofile

“Who put Ellen in the blackgum tree?”

Decades after trespassing children spotted the desiccated corpse wedged in the treetop, no one knows the answer.

Kate Thrush and her former college professor, Dr. Judith Kane, travel to Cinderwich, Tennessee, in hopes that maybe it was their Ellen: Katie’s lost aunt, Judith’s long-gone lover. But they’re not the only ones to have come here looking for closure. The people of Cinderwich, a town hardly more than a skeleton itself, are staunchly resistant to the outsiders’ questions about Ellen and her killer. And the deeper the two women dig—the more rot they unearth—the closer they come to exhuming the evil that lies, hungering, at the roots of Cinderwich.
