Alone . . . Massachusetts State Trooper Bobby Dodge watches a tense hostage standoff unfold through the scope of his sniper rifle. Just across the street, in wealthy Back Bay, Boston, an armed man has barricaded himself with his wife and child. The man’s finger tightens on the trigger and Dodge has only a split second to react . . . and forever pay the consequences.
Alone . . . that’s where the nightmare began for cool, beautiful, and dangerously sexy Catherine Rose Gagnon. Twenty-five years ago, she was buried underground during a month-long nightmare of abduction and abuse. Now her husband has just been killed. Her father-in-law, the powerful Judge Gagnon, blames Catherine for his son’s death . . . and for the series of unexplained illnesses that have sent her own young son repeatedly to the hospital.
Alone . . . a madman survived solitary confinement in a maximum security prison where he’d done hard time for the most sadistic of crimes. Now he walks the streets a free man, invisible, anonymous . . . and filled with an unquenchable rage for vengeance. What brings them together is a moment of violence—but what connects them is a passion far deeper and much more dangerous. For a killer is loose who’s woven such an intricate web of evil that no one is above suspicion, no one is beyond harm, and no one will see death coming until it has them cornered, helpless, and alone.
From the Hardcover edition.
The shadows of the past haunt a woman to deadly effect in this gripping work of psychological suspense. In 1980, Catherine, then a schoolgirl, was kidnapped, ******, and buried alive for a month. More than 20 years later, the threat to the adult Catherine is her unstable husband, Jimmy Gagnon, who's holding a gun on her and her sickly four-year-old son Nathan. Police sniper Bobby Dodge makes a split-second decision and kills Jimmy before he can pull the trigger. While most agree that Bobby did what he needed to do to save Catherine and Nathan's lives, others, including Jimmy's parents, think that Catherine set up Jimmy's death. As more people begin dying, it becomes apparent the genesis for the present situation is Catherine's past abduction.
