A former FBI Agent turned crime fiction writer wakes up one morning to discover a vicious killer is using her books as blueprints for murder.
"Taut, fast-paced suspense...A killer debut."
-- NYT Bestselling Author Mariah Stewart
After a particularly disturbing murder-suicide four years ago, Rowan Smith left the FBI and became a writer, penning murder mysteries where the good guys always win and the bad guys always go to jail. But one morning she wakes up to the news that someone is killing people in the same manner as her fictional murders … people with the same name as characters in her books.
Michael and John Flynn, brothers with their own private security company, are hired to keep an eye on the reclusive Rowan. As they spend more time with her, John realizes Rowan has secrets of her own – secrets that may get them all killed. But Rowan is certain her past has nothing to do with her present, until one crime takes a plot twist that didn’t come from her book, but from her life.
The closer the killer gets, the more he taunts her, until Rowan knows this is one story she might not survive.
