Mystery | Suspense
The scent is unmistakable â€“ gardenias, sweet and delicate,
the same perfume that his beautiful first wife, Jennifer,
always wore. Opening his eyes in the hospital room where
heâ€™s recovering from an accident, New Orleans detective Rick
Bentz sees her standing in the doorway. Then Jennifer blows
him a kiss and disappears. But it couldnâ€™t have been
Jennifer. She died twelve years ago...
Once out of the hospital, Bentz begins to see Jennifer
everywhere, haunting and taunting him, then vanishing
without a trace. Could she still be alive? But it was Bentz
who identified Jenniferâ€™s body after her horrible car wreck,
and there had been no question in his mind that it was her
crumpled form behind the wheel, her clothes, her wedding
ring. Heâ€™s never doubted it â€“ until now. He canâ€™t tell his
new wife, Olivia, about the sightings or his secret fear
that heâ€™s losing his mind, even though he knows she suspects
something is wrong. But Olivia is also hiding a secret...
When a copy of Jenniferâ€™s death certificate arrives in the
mail, emblazoned with a red question mark, Bentz follows the
postmark trail to Los Angeles, returning to the painful
memories heâ€™s tried so hard to forget, and straight into a
killerâ€™s web. Reconnecting with his former LAPD colleagues,
Bentz begins to piece together Jenniferâ€™s last days, but
each new discovery only serves as a chilling reminder of how
little he really knew about his first wife. Then the murders
begin, each victim a part of Jenniferâ€™s past, each grisly
corpse pointing to Bentz as the prime suspect.
Someoneâ€™s been waiting patiently, silently. Someone who
knows exactly what happened that night twelve years ago and
has been anticipating Bentzâ€™s every move. Soon it will be
Bentzâ€™s turn to suffer for his sins. But he wonâ€™t be the
only one made to pay the ultimate price. For a diabolical
killer has now made Olivia the prime target...
