After escaping the detention center, following her mother’s death, Amy’s only family connection is with her estranged sister. With that in mind, she sets off on a killing spree of unprecedented size.
Riley Walker has discovered that she is the illegitimate daughter of the mass killer, David James Walker, also known as The Deathmask Killer. This also means she is the only living relative to Amy Walker, the zombified, unstoppable, undead killer that has slashed her way through countless victims. Believing everyone from that family was dead, she thought she was safe to proceed with life as a University of Chicago student. But when she starts to receive strange messages that her sister Amy could still be alive, she can’t believe it’s all real. Those close to her want her to know that Amy is very much alive and killing everyone in a path straight towards her.
The proof starts to appear in the form of bodies on campus. Can they stop Amy before a reign of terror starts at the university? Or is it already too late?
With dark forces seeking to use her and a small band of reluctant heroes gathering to stop her, Amy feels the walls closing in. Her last stand is now. Death stalks the university as Riley Walker tries to come to terms with her unreal past in this final chapter of terror and mayhem.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This is the fourth in my series and the original inspiration was because in the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, I was once in a Subway and someone had written "AMY" on the wall in what looked like crayon and kids' writing. And that was all it took. Next thing you know I'm four books deep into my slasher series starring six year old serial killer Amy Walker.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Amy is the creation of all the classic slasher horror movie monsters I grew up with. She's a little Freddy, Jason, Chucky, Michael Myers all rolled into and with a dash of some of the creepy things I've seen as a parent haha. The heroes who go up against her I like to think as classic cowboy types who ride into the fray to save the people. My characters are hopefully very black and white, good vs evil, yin and yang.
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” Professor Barry Laughton looked out into the auditorium over the darkened faces of his students. He paced back and forth on the dimly lit stage with a projection of a man up on the screen. It was a mugshot, and he was familiar to most of the people in the room. A Canadian serial killer who had brutalized women before he was caught and incarcerated. Barry clicked the remote and the slide changed to another face. “We know that there is a genetic predisposition to psychosis but is there something more than that? Is there something a parent passes to a child that makes them a killer?”
The back door of the auditorium banged open. Several people turned to look. The noise echoed through the room. Barry shielded his eyes to try and see who had interrupted him. It was a young woman. He couldn’t see much beyond that. He looked at his watch and sighed. The rest would have to wait. “That’s all for today, thank you.” He clicked another button for the lights to come back up. The image of the man on the screen dissipated. “We’ll continue this talk tomorrow and we’re going to discuss something called the MAOA gene so put your science hats on along with your investigative.”
People began to collect their things and file out. Barry was doing the same, organizing his papers and picking up his briefcase. He was well aware the woman who had interrupted him was still standing at the back of the room. Nearly everyone was gone before she finally made her way to the front. She stood unassumingly behind Barry. He knew she was there but said nothing. Neither did she. This dance continued for several minutes.
“Something I can do for you, Miss…?” Barry finally said without turning. She cleared her throat, clearly nervous. She didn’t provide a name.
“Professor Laughton? I wonder if I could have a few moments of your time,” she asked meekly.
He sighed. A student who likely wanted to interview him for some other class project, paper or blog. Barry Laughton was a tenured professor at the university and had written some very well-respected books on serial killers and the psychology of such. His class was consistently full every semester. “Are you a student here Miss…,” he said, again searching for a name?
She nodded. “I am.”
“I’m going to ask you to speak to my TA and book some office time with me shortly all right?” Barry said, turning to face her. She was an attractive girl with long brown hair, pulled back over her shoulders. Her face was clear and bright but there was a sadness there too.
“Sir, please, I just need a few moments…” she begged. It almost took him back that she was so insistent.
“I promise, my TA will find you some space with me in the very near…,” he began and started to walk away.
“I just found out my biological father is David James Walker,” she blurted as Barry walked past her. He froze. Her words hung in the air, thick and heavy.
