Where do you go when nowhere is safe?
From the author of Death Waits for You, which Ann Rule
called "a suspense-filled exercise in terror," comes a new
novel of a woman facing a menacing danger she cannot
escape no matter where she runs.
When an attempted rape in her city apartment leaves artist Abby Carter deeply shaken, she flees to the beautiful Victorian house she recently inherited in a tiny town on the upper Hhudson River. But rumors of ghosts from generations past, and an unsolved murder, are unsettling...while handsome local homicide detective Bud Williams investigates a brand-new rash of violent crime.
Empathy with a terrified victim leads Abby to use her artistic skills to capture the face of a local serial rapist. But when the portrait leads to an arrest, Abby starts receiving threats and anonymous phone calls, and the house she believed to be a refuge becomes instead a place from her worst nightmare. Bud vows to protect her, but Abby knows she must look into the face of evil herself, because failure could mean her life.
