OVERVIEW

And Down Will Come Baby
by Anna Louise

And Down Will Come Baby is a horror story filled to capacity with monsters gone mad and their decent into the sadism of physiological and psychological child abuse, generously bestowed upon the innocents who are to become the next generation's predators. This is a story of ten abuse victims who have been seasoned to become perpetrators themselves.

This gripping, well-crafted tale is told by the often naïve Sophie Malone, caregiver to ten children convicted of sexual crimes, children who have themselves been chillingly abused at the hands of familial pedophiles, sociopaths, drug addicts, and one hell-bound priest.

The author stirs together themes of indelible abuse with goodly spoonfuls of idealistic legal and foster-care systems, bringing the reader fantastically close to the vividly flawed characters where preconceptions are outdated, and demonstrating the horrific outcomes of children who, if abused and exploited enough, return to their most fundamental survival instincts to hurt, rape, and even murder. These are the children willing to give up their souls in exchange for getting needs met, anyway they can.

And Down Will Come Baby is a palpable story of raw emotion taken beyond the edges of darkness, with a view of human nature at its worst. A story of monsters so terrifyingly depicted they will keep the reader awake long into the night wondering, "What if?"
