ordinary—dream has gone terrifyingly awry …
Gage Dekker still blames himself for the car accident that

understands grief all too well. Within a year, Gage and Anna are married, his
career is thriving, and both feel ready to become parents once more.
After a heartbreaking miscarriage, they begin the long

more sinister turn. Every attempt he makes to uncover the truth only drives a
wedge between him and Anna. Even as he is propelled toward an unthinkable
