She has taken up boxing, shooting, and running. She also wants Boston's top homicide detective, D. D. Warren, to handle the investigation. But as D.D. delves deeper into the case, she starts to question the woman's story. Instinct tells her that Charlene may not be in any danger at all. If that's true, the woman must have a secret--one so terrifying that it alone could be the greatest threat of all.   ONE OF LIBRARY JOURNAL'S BEST THRILLERS OF THE YEAR
