As a teenager, Jill Shannon fell victim to her stepfather’s cruel abuse. Now, as an adult, Jill’s made it—she has a successful career and a solid, if not static, marriage to Detective Alex Shannon. Together they live out what seems to be a perfect life in Seattle.
The vow she made as a teenager to never again be a victim lies dormant—until one day a reporter lures her to his hotel room under the pretense of an interview—and suddenly it all comes rushing back.
Jill seeks revenge on the reporter, triggering a series of events that leads Jill down a wormhole of retribution, forcing her to spin an ever-widening web of lies.
Meanwhile, Alex is on the case of a series of murders that began as cyber relationships. There seems to be a familiar fingerprint on these crimes, but Alex refuses to believe that the murderer could be so close to him.
I have to say even though I prefer Chick-lit books, I did really enjoy a break from them to read this fantastic book. The plot is so interesting that I could hardly the book down. The details in this book are amazing and I found that the author had clearly put a lot of thought into each of the chapters. There are two major story lines in this book and Chris has put them together so unexpectedly but so well. Bring on the next book. I did not know what to expect from this book but I absolutely loved it.
