For three months, Eve Renner has struggled to remember the night she was nearly killed. She remembers getting the anxious call from a friend from her past; she remembers seeing that friend lying in a pool of blood. And she remembers a horrifying glimpse of her lover Cole Dennis's face as a gunshot plunged her into darkness.
Now, her memory and emotions scarred, Eve has returned to New Orleans to forget the past just as a new series of killings begins.
As her forgotten memories begin to surface, bodies are found and each one seems to lure her back to the ruins of Our Lady of Virtues Hospital, the crumbling old asylum that was once the scene of unspeakable madness. Someone who knows the shocking truths hidden there has been waiting for this moment to strike. He is deadlier than she could ever have imagined and closer than she knows.
In bestseller Jackson's spine-tingling romantic thriller, the turbo-charged follow-up to Shiver (2006), photographer Abby Chastain, who played a major role in Shiver, finds she may have a half-sister in Eve Renner, the adopted daughter of Dr. Terrence Renner, former head psychiatrist at Our Lady of Virtues Mental Hospital, a shuttered asylum near (pre-Katrina) New Orleans. When "the Reviver," a tattoo-loving psychopath intent on revenge, almost kills Eve, the amnesia-plagued Eve fears Cole Dennis, her lawyer boyfriend, might be the monster, since she saw him at the scene of her assault (and a friend's murder), though Cole is released for lack of evidence. The body count mounts through many unexpected twists and turns as a grim Det. Reuben Montoya, Abby's fianc , and his partner, Rick Bentz, try to puzzle out the killer's cryptic clues before he strikes again. A heart-stopping resolution suggests another heavy-breathing update might be in the works.
