From #1 New York Times bestselling author Harlan Coben,
a heart-pounding thriller about the ties we have to our past?and
the lies that bind us together
It?s a profile, like all the others on the online dating site.
But as NYPD detective Kat Donovan focuses on the accompanying
picture, she feels her whole world explode as emotions she?s
ignored for decades come crashing down on her. Staring back at her
is her ex-fiancé, Jeff, the man who shattered her heart?and whom
she hasn?t seen in eighteen years.
Kat feels a spark, wondering if this might be the moment when
past tragedies recede and a new world opens up to her. But when she
reaches out to the man in the profile, her reawakened hope quickly
darkens into suspicion and then terror as an unspeakable conspiracy
comes to light in which monsters prey upon the most vulnerable.
As the body count mounts and Kat?s hope for a second chance with
Jeff grows more and more elusive, she is consumed by an
investigation that challenges her feelings about everyone she?s
ever loved?her former fiancé, her mother, and even her father,
whose cruel murder so long ago has never been fully explained. With
lives on the line, including her own, Kat must venture deeper into
the darkness than she ever has before and discover if she has the
strength to survive what she finds there.
