About the author
Wendy Walker has worked as an attorney specialising in family law. She lives in Connecticut where she is at work on her next novel.
The rape of 15-year-old Jenny Kramer in the well-to-do town of Fairview, Conn., propels this exceptional psychological thriller from Walker (Social Lives). The masked rapist wore a condom and was careful to leave no forensic evidence at the spot in the woods where he attacked Jenny after she wandered away from a party attended by nearly everyone in the 10th grade at Fairview High. Jenny's parents, Charlotte and Tom, have vastly different reactions to this horrible assault on their daughter. Charlotte worries about her social standing, while Tom wants vengeance. When a doctor suggests a medication that will erase Jenny's memory of the attack, Charlotte immediately agrees. As her parents grapple with their own emotional responses, they ignore Jenny's pain. Alan Forrester, the family's psychiatrist, provides the nonjudgmental, almost clinical narration. Forrester only wants to help the Kramers, but as Jenny's treatment continues, he fears that the investigation will implicate someone close to him. While secret after secret about the residents of Fairview add to the suspense, Forrester's secrets may be the most stunning of all. 250,000-copy first printing.
