A thrilling novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag, “one of the most intense suspense writers around” (Chicago Tribune).

Dana Nolan was a promising young TV reporter until a notorious serial killer tried to add her to his list of victims. Nearly a year has passed since she survived her ordeal, but the physical, emotional, and psychological scars run deep. Struggling with the torment of post-traumatic stress syndrome, plagued by flashbacks and nightmares, Dana returns to her hometown in an attempt to begin to put her life back together. But home doesn’t provide the comfort she expects.

Dana’s harrowing story and her return to small-town life have rekindled police and media interest in the unsolved case of her childhood best friend, Casey Grant, who disappeared without a trace the summer after their graduation from high school. Terrified of truths long buried, Dana reluctantly begins to look back at her past. Viewed through the dark filter of PTSD, old friends and loved ones become suspects and enemies. Questioning everything she knows, refusing to be defined by the traumas of her past, Dana seeks out a truth that may prove too terrible to be believed...



  • Good plot but needlessly long

    By Fufubaby
    Writers are taught to show, not tell. Unfortunately, this book comprised too much telling. We are repeatedly told about the main characters' (Dana and John) emotions. I was able to skip over paragraphs and even pages of character angst. If you are a reader who enjoys getting into a character's head, this may be a good book for you. If you enjoy fast-paced plots, make another selection.
  • Repedative

    By BigFan73
    Incredibly long winded book! Way too long. Started just skimming through since it was so repedative.

    This is an excellent book & I would recommend to anyone. It's more than just a mystery as it touches on severe TBI from the victim. Also reaches into the reality of a decorated veteran suffering brain injury and PTSD, as well as the reality of what they face when re-entering society.

  • Not That Good

    By Tlanden
    Predictable and a little repetitive. Other books by this author have been excellent.
  • Excellent follow up to 9th girl

    I am a huge fan of this Tami Hoag. This book I could not put down! I cried a lot reading this story. It was not what I expected but the reality of the story was so overwhelming that I have to say it's one of the best of Hoags thus far!! Don't deny yourself the truth of our heroes, which in my eyes is undeniably our military forces!!
