Linda Orett has tried desperately to erase her past. But a new home, new friends, and even a new name are not enough. For Linda, the abyss of memory is too deep—and impossible to cross. And now a radio bulletin has pierced the fragile bubble of her new existence. In her former hometown, a child has been found dead, murdered under the same circumstances as her daughter three years before . . . a case in which the police had only one suspect: Linda.
Tried for the murder of her own child, Linda was ultimately freed on a legal technicality, and she and her husband, Matt, fled to a small coastal town in the hope of rebuilding their shattered lives. But the wounds have been reopened, the blood of memory flows once again, and the most chilling images and events from Linda’s past flicker and flood into view. She plunges into the dark and dangerous world of self-doubt, a world where anything is possible and where no one can be trusted—not the police, not her husband . . . and not even herself.
