EVIL BEHIND THAT DOOR
Orca Book Publishers, Victoria, 2013
When softhearted handyman Cedric O'Toole agrees to help his high school nemesis renovate his farmhouse, he finds himself facing old fears. Barry Mitchell is just out of prison and he's broke. Not only that, his parents have gone missing, and he's the prime suspect in their disappearance. But when Barry warns him not to touch the boarded-up room in the cellar, the ever-curious Cedric can't resist. What he finds unleashes a tale of violence, deception, and abuse.
"Fradkin successfully brings back her handyman for a second outing... Plenty of suspense and action are packed into a short and satisfying story"
