She stumbles into the street in a thin cotton nightdress, tripping in her haste to get away from her house. Her feet are bare, her movements frantic. “I have to get out of here,” she pleads. “He’s killing me.”
For weeks, Carolyn Tate’s suspicions that her husband is trying to kill her have been ignored. Just two hours after her last attempt to make someone listen, she dies mysteriously: the killer has been so clever, the means of her death is almost untraceable.
Carolyn’s neighbor, former victims’ advocate and cop, Sally Fairburn, is determined to seek justice for her friend’s death. But although Carolyn suspected her husband, Sally finds no evidence he was involved. And Carolyn’s best friends are strangely quick to defend him…
Sally knows one of Carolyn’s friends, Lauren, is hiding something. She can see it in her tear-stained cheeks, averted eyes and tense shoulders: fear. But just as Lauren’s finally ready to come clean, she is the next to die inexplicably. Desperate to prevent another death, Sally visits a maximum-security prisoner. He may hold the key to the killer’s identity but if she consorts with the devil, she is crossing a dangerous line.
Then a stranger threatens her teenage son—a finger drawn across his throat. Her world stops. It’s not just Sally at risk—everyone she loves is in danger unless she finds the truth… Can Sally stop a brutal killer before more innocent lives are lost?
