Summary :

Such a Pretty Face
So young, so sweet. She appeared out of nowhere, in the middle of traffic, on a busy day. A teenager with no past, no family -- no memories.

Such a Lovely Child
So blond and beautiful. Carol and Paul were drawn to her -- she was the child they'd never had. A dream come true. And then Carol's nightmares began -- the ghastly sounds in the night ... the bloody face in the mirror ... the razor-sharp ax.

Such Relentless Evil
So deceptively innocent. Most nothers would die for such a darling little angel. And that's what frightened Carol most of all ...
