About this book

Book Summary

For ambitious, troubled architect Ray Jackson, the nightmare begins one sultry California night when his wife disappears. No phone call, no ransom note, no body, reveals whether Leigh is dead or alive. Then, suddenly, a woman shows up on Ray’s doorstep demanding answers: Kathleen, an old friend of Leigh’s. Ray wants answers, too, but his questions seem strange and shady to Kat .... As past and present collide, as a chilling mystery begins to unravel, Ray is suddenly confronted with the most agonizing decision of his life – to face his own violence-laden past, acting to prevent another horrendous act of violence, or not. His choice will leave nothing and no one the same.

Media Reviews

"Ray only with the greatest of reluctance sifts through secrets old and new for a truth that's as hard to swallow as it is to care about." - PW.
"The book is a welcome breath of fresh air, especially for readers who've lost interest in the stodgily formulaic Reilly series." - Booklist.
"There's the usual O'Shaughnessy overplotting, but without the saving grace of a certain sharp, tough, yet sweetly feminine protagonist." - Kirkus.
