The outstanding new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Erica Spindler.

Face your fear. Uncover the truth.

It's been three months since that night - the night that Detective Micki Dare almost died. Physically, she's healed but the nightmares remain, and she can't shake the feeling that more happened that night than her partner Detective Zach Harris is telling her. The only thing she can do is try to carry on as normal and solve the latest case she and Zach have been assigned to.

A string of brutal home invasions are rocking the city and the families targeted have nothing in common. Why were these victims chosen? The deeper Micki and Zach go into the case, the more they realise something isn't right. There's something . . . familiar about the person doing this - and it's a familiarity Micki has been trying to forget. Suddenly, this case is hitting too close to home and Micki has to decide if she really wants to learn the truth about that night . . .

Terrifying and suspenseful, the new novel from Erica Spindler is a masterclass in thriller storytelling - you won't be able to put it down.
