When a Nashville lawyer reopens a decades-old murder case, she becomes the ultimate target in a romantic thriller by the New York Times bestselling author.
At first, they struggle to escape. Then a torrent of blows rains down upon their bodies until their eyes cloud over in final agony. The killer shows no remorse—just a twisted need to witness each victim's last terrified moments.
Public defender Rachel Wainwright is struggling to reopen a decades-old murder case, convinced that the wrong man is in prison. Homicide detective Deke Morgan doesn't agree. But if Rachel's hunch is correct, whoever fatally bludgeoned young, beautiful Annie Dawson thirty years ago could be roaming free—and responsible for a new string of strikingly similar killings.
The more Rachel and Deke butt heads, the closer they come to finding answers—and each other. But uncovering the truth will come at a price Rachel never thought she’d have to pay. Now she's become the target of a rage honed by years of jealousy and madness. And a murderer is ready to show her just how vicious the truth can be.
