Publisher Description

The #1 New York Times-bestselling author's terrifying new thriller about one man's ice-cold malice, and one woman's fight to reclaim her life.

Former Army brat Morgan Albright has finally planted roots in a friendly neighborhood near Baltimore. Her friend and roommate Nina helps her make the mortgage payments, as does Morgan's job as a bartender. But after she and Nina host their first dinner party—attended by Luke, the flirtatious IT guy who'd been chatting her up at the bar—her carefully built world is shattered. The back door glass is broken, cash and jewelry are missing, her car is gone, and Nina lies dead on the floor.

Soon, a horrific truth emerges: It was Morgan who let the monster in. "Luke" is actually a cold-hearted con artist named Gavin who targets a particular type of woman, steals her assets and identity, and then commits his ultimate goal: murder.

What the FBI tells Morgan is beyond chilling. Nina wasn't his type. Morgan is. Nina was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. And Morgan's nightmare is just beginning. Soon she has no choice but to flee to her mother's home in Vermont. While she struggles to build something new, she meets another man, Miles Jameson. He isn't flashy or flirtatious, and his family business has deep roots in town. But Gavin is still out there hunting new victims, and he hasn't forgotten the one who got away.

Love it and feel shortchanged at the same time

Beautiful story just an anticlimactic ending. The story flows so wonderfully throughout Morgan’s journey but the narration for the antagonist was so straightforward and obvious it left me wanting for more depth.

Historical intrigue ,

There is no greater storyteller than Nora Roberts. A gripping story from cover to cover.

Identity theft, romance and characters carefully crafted to tell an intriguing story. Nora Roberts at her best.

I have read every book that Ms Roberts has written (this includes books by J. D. Robb) and this is probably one of the best. It includes suspense, romance, and family ties. Morgan and Miles were one of my favorite couples. They weren’t your typical sappy lovers but both had their heads on straight and handled any problems with a straight, forthright manner. The secondary characters were just as enthralling and the family dynamics in both the Nash and the Jameson families were something to strive for. This was one of the best individual books that Ms Robert’s has written, as we know that any of her series can’t be beat!
