The scent is unmistakableâ€”gardenias, sweet and delicate, the
same perfume that his beautiful first wife, Jennifer, always
wore. Opening his eyes in the hospital room where he'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 couldn'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 Jennifer'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. He's never doubted itâ€”until now. He can't tell his new
wife, Olivia, about the sightings or his secret fear that
he's losing his mind, even though he knows she suspects
something is wrong. But Olivia is also hiding a secret...
When a copy of Jennifer's death certificate arrives in the
mail, emblazoned with a redquestion mark, Bentz follows the
postmark trail to Los Angeles, returning to the painful
memories he's tried so hard to forget, and straight into a
killer's web. Reconnecting with his former LAPD colleagues,
Bentz begins to piece together Jennifer's last days, but
each new discovery only serves as a chilling reminder of how
little he really knew about his first wife. Then
themurdersbegin, each victim a part of Jennifer's past, each
grisly corpse pointing to Bentz as the prime suspect.
Someone's been waiting patiently, silently. Someone who
knows exactly what happened that night twelve years ago and
has been anticipating Bentz's every move. Soon it will be
Bentz's turn to suffer for his sins. But he won't be the
only one made to pay the ultimate price. For a diabolical
killer has now made Olivia the prime target...
