From the Publisher
Daughter of a controlling mother, Elizabeth finally let loose
one night, drinking at a nightclub and allowing a strange man's
seductive Russian accent lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive.
The events that followed changed her life forever.
Twelve years later, the woman known as Abigail Lowery lives on the
outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer,
she designs sophisticated security systems-and supplements
her own security with a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms.
She keeps to herself, saying little, revealing nothing. But
Abigail's reserve only intrigues police chief Brooks Gleason. Her
logical mind, her secretive nature, and her unromantic viewpoints
leave him fascinated but frustrated. He suspects that Abigail needs
protection from something-and that her elaborate defenses hide a
story that must be revealed.
With a quirky, unforgettable heroine and a pulse-pounding plotline,
Nora Roberts presents a riveting new read that cements her place as
today's most reliably entertaining thriller
author-and will leave people hungering for more.
