But when she literally uncovers crucial evidence linking him to the crime, the killer pursues Gabriela only to discover that she shares his disturbing fascination with murder! Uniquely original, CURDLED is a hot-blooded thriller with unpredictable twists and a shockingly memorable climax!

One day, after wiping away a victim's blood, Gabriela notices that the deceased scribbled the name of her murderer on the floor tile. Unfortunately, the slayer, a sadistic serial killer, soon realizes that Gabriela knows his identity. He then goes after Gabriela with a vengeance, making her life a living hell from which she may never recover.
