When a serial killer breaks into the home of bestselling author, Sage Quintano, she barely escapes with her life. Her husband, Niko, a homicide detective, insists they move to rural New Hampshire, where he accepts a position as Grafton County Sheriff. Sage buries secrets from that night—secrets she swears to take to her deathbed.

Three years of anguish and painful memories pass, and a grisly murder case lands on Niko’s desk. A strange caller begins tormenting Sage—she can’t outrun the past.

When Sage’s twin sister suddenly goes missing, Sage searches Niko’s case files and discovers similarities to the Boston killer. A sadistic psychopath is preying on innocent women, marring their bodies in unspeakable ways. And now, he has her sister.

Cryptic clues. Hidden messages. Is the killer hinting at his identity? Or is he trying to lure Sage into a deadly trap to end his reign of terror with a matching set of corpses?

event. My opinion is my own.

I loved it!

Sage Quintano has been through hell. She is attacked by a crazed killer and now years later shes being haunted again. Niko, her husband, is a detective. He convinces her to leave Boston and move to a rural small town to start fresh, but when a killer comes to his town things begin to heat up again. Sage is now being threatened again by this man who has upped the game and took her twin sister. Now Sage has to put herself in danger to save her.

This book is a bit of a wild ride. It starts off fast and just keeps going till the very end. Its a psychological thriller filled with mysterious twists and turns on a every page. The characters are easy to fall for, especially Sage. With her dark past and her rocky present, she is a character easy to feel sorry for and get attached to. This book was definitely a late night page turner. I hated putting it down because I just wanted, NEEDED, to know what was next. 

This book had me hooked from page one. It was well written and It was filled with mystery, action, and crime. I have never read anything from this author, but I look forward to reading more in the future. Based on this book alone, I am sure I will enjoy them all.
