Tate Collier, once one of the country’s finest trial
lawyers, is trying to forget his past. Now a divorced gentleman farmer, land
developer, and community advocate in rural Virginia, he’s regrouping from some
disastrous mistakes in the realms of love and the law. But controversy and
danger seem to have an unerring hold on Tate. Even as he struggles to rebuild
his life, his alter ego is plotting his demise.
Aaron Matthews, a brilliant psychologist, has turned his
talents away from curing patients to far deadlier goals. He’s targeted Tate,
Tate’s ex-wife, Bett, and their estranged daughter, Megan, for unspeakable
revenge. Matthews, ruthless and hell-bent, will destroy anything that inhibits
his plans. When their daughter disappears, Tate and Bett reunite in a
desperate, heart-pounding attempt to find her and to stop Matthews, a
psychopath whose gift of a glib tongue and talent for coercion are as dangerous
as knives and guns. Featuring an urgent race against the clock, gripping
details of psychological manipulation, and the brilliant twists and turns that
are trademark Deaver.
