Eve Dallas is one tough cop. But when Trudy Lombard arrives in town, Eve is thrown into the past, to the days when she was a traumatized girl - trapped in foster care with the twisted woman who now sits in front of her.

A few days later, Trudy is found dead, and Eve finds that she is not the only one to have suffered at Trudy's hands.
