In this gripping novel from American’s Queen of Suspense,
a young woman is haunted by two murders that are closely linked—despite the 110
years that separate them.
Following the breakup of her marriage and her pursuit by
an obsessed stalker, criminal defense attorney Emily Graham accepts an offer to
work in a major Manhattan law firm. Feeling a need for roots, she buys her
ancestral home in New Jersey, which her family sold in 1892, after the
disappearance of young Madeline Shapley, one of Emily’s forebears.
Now, more than a century later, as the house is being
renovated, the bones of a young woman are found in the backyard. She is
identified as Martha Lawrence, who disappeared four years earlier. Clutched in
Martha’s skeletal hand is the finger bone of another woman with a ring still on
it—a Shapley family heirloom.
When Emily investigates the link between her family’s past and the
recent murder, she provokes a devious and seductive killer, who selects her as
his next victim.
