The New York Times bestselling author of No
Time for Goodbye returns with a haunting psychological
thriller that blends the twists and turns of Gillian Flynn
with the driving suspense of Harlan Coben, in which a man is
troubled by odd sounds for which there is no rational
College professor Paul Davis is a normal guy with a normal
life. Until, driving along a deserted road late one night,
he surprises a murderer disposing of a couple of bodies.
Thatâ€™s when Paulâ€™s "normal" existence is turned upside down.
After nearly losing his own life in that encounter, he finds
himself battling PTSD, depression, and severe problems at
work. His wife, Charlotte, desperate to cheer him up, brings
home a vintage typewriterâ€”complete with ink ribbons and
heavy round keysâ€”to encourage him to get started on that
novel heâ€™s always intended to write.
However, the typewriter itself is a problem. Paul swears
itâ€™s possessed and types by itself at night. But only Paul
can hear the noise coming from downstairs; Charlotte doesnâ€™t
hear a thing. And she worries heâ€™s going off the rails.
Paul believes the typewriter is somehow connected to the
murderer he discovered nearly a year ago. The killer had
made his victims type apologies to him before ending their
lives. Has another sick twist of fate entwined his life with
the killerâ€”could this be the same machine? Increasingly
tormented but determined to discover the truth and confront
his nightmare, Paul begins investigating the deaths himself.
But that may not be the best thing to do. Maybe Paul should
just take the typewriter back to where his wife found it.
Maybe he should stop asking questions and simply walk away
while he can. . . .
