by Meg O'Brien

From the creator of the Jessica James mystery series comes a sharp, edgy psychological thriller in which a woman is forced to confront the demon of her past--before he destroys her future.

She's a successful writer, on the brink of becoming a bestseller. She has achieved all she set out to. When she returns to her hometown to speak at a writers' festival, Carrie comes face-to-face with the man--the monster--who victimized her for years as an innocent child. A man who has become a prominent television personality. A man who holds a terrifying amount of power. No longer able to ignore her anger, and fearing he is targeting a new victim, Carrie confronts her tormentor. But in doing so, she unleashes a fury of doubts, questions and dangers, as she realizes her memories are not all that they seem.
