The Monster She Wrote Podcast

Feb 21, 2023

When Hilton James’s wife, the only elected African American judge in Dade County, FL, begins receiving racist hate mail threatening her and Hilton and their two children, he understandably becomes obsessed with discovering who the culprit is and protecting his family from them. However, this crisis is not the only one he is facing. After years of feeling that he had moved on from a childhood trauma involving his grandmother, he is once again facing disturbed sleep and weird nightmares, both when he sleeps and while waking. As he negotiates these two monstrous situations, one external and one internal (and possibly supernatural), he faces the terrifying possibility that he could stop the stalker and still lose his family, and maybe even his own sense of self.
