For Dr. David Beck, the loss was shattering. And every day for the past eight years, he has relived the horror of what happened. The gleaming lake. The pale moonlight. The piercing screams. The night his wife was taken. The last night he saw her alive.
Everyone tells him it's time to move on, to forget the past once and for all. But for David Beck, there can be no closure. A message has appeared on his computer, a phrase only he and his dead wife know. Suddenly Beck is taunted with the impossible -- that somewhere, somehow, Elizabeth is alive.
Beck has been warned to tell no one. And he doesn't. Instead, he runs from the people he trusts the most, plunging headlong into a search for the shadowy figure whose messages hold out a desperate hope.
But already Beck is being hunted down. He's headed straight into the heart of a dark and deadly secret -- and someone intends to stop him before he gets there.
From the Hardcover edition.
Fourteen years ago, Dr. David Beck's young wife Elizabeth was horribly murdered by a serial killer who is now in jail. Or was she? Someone who looks just like Elizabeth has been communicating with David via computer, causing him to wonder whether Elizabeth's father, a cop, misidentified the body that is buried in a grave with Elizabeth's name on it. Things get complicated when David is falsely accused of a gruesome murder himself. Who or what is behind these strange and awful events? With the aid of his sister's girlfriend, a plus-sized model named Shauna, and his high-priced celebrity defense lawyer, David tries to get to the bottom of things.
