Award-winning author Catherine Hunter serves up a haunting thriller that will keep you enthralled. Kelly, a young costume designer, is struggling to put her life together after the recent suicide of her husband. After a series of disturbing phone calls, as well as more earthly dangers, she finds herself on the lam with her young nephew, looking over her shoulder wondering if the danger she faces comes from the living . . . or the dead."A fine addition to the genre of the darkmystery. Hunter writes as if Mary Higgins Clark were sitting at one shoulder, Joy Fielding at the other--but adds a unique touch of creepiness that is all her own. Her characters live and breathe, and her prose marches withoutmisstep toward a riveting climax."--Stephen R. George, author of Seeing Eye and Nightlife (as Jack Ellis)
