A therapist's patients become victims in a campaign to destroy her life in this unsettling and electrifying novel from the author of Convince Me.
What is the cost of carrying not only your own pain and grief, but that of so many others?
Dr. Lana Landers is good at her job. She's an accomplished marriage and family therapist, dedicated and compassionate. When she is summoned by the police after one of her patients holds his wife hostage at gunpoint, she is able to intervene and dissuade him. Lana becomes a media sensation. But as her star rises, A target on her back emerges.
How much can a person bear before breaking?
Not everyone is impressed by Lana's achievements. In fact, someone is after her. And to get to her, they are targeting what matters most to her: her patients. One by one, Lana's patients begin to spiral after the receipt of unsettling "gifts." An embezzler and his wife receive "dirty money," bills soaked in rancid oil; an unsuspecting husband receives an audio file of his wife with her lover; a young woman receives a jar of formaldehyde that reminds her of a dreadful mistake from her past. Then Lana herself is the target of a home invasion, and when the perpetrators flee, they leave behind a message: I'm watching you.
Aided by Cal Murray, the ambitious and charismatic investigative journalist with whom she has an explosive attraction, Lana discovers that someone has it in for her. Someone with access to her patient records. Someone who wants to end her stellar reputation, her newfound success, and even, perhaps, her life.
