A New York Times and International bestselling author, Erica Spindler's skill for crafting engrossing plots and compelling characters has earned both critical praise and legions of fans. Her stories have been lauded as “thrill-packed page turners, white- knuckle rides and edge-of-your-seat whodunits.”
Miranda Rader once was known as Randi the problem teen. Rejected by her family after a brush with the law, Randi’s life seemed to then be heading down all the wrong roads. Fortunately, the time spent in youth detention becomes the making of her.
Now a police officer serving in a town nearby to her childhood home, Miranda now feels that her life is evolving exactly how she wants it to. It all derails when her colleagues make a connection between the crime scenes of two murders; the first being the visceral slaying of a local man and the second the shooting of a police officer on the same force as herself. Miranda herself can objectively see that she is the common denominator between the two. The first murder victim was Miranda’s abductor from so many years ago. The second victim was the officer instrumental in her juvenile arrest.
Wounded by the lack of support from her police chief and colleagues, Miranda finds herself on suspension and not knowing who to trust. It is the memory of the other girl tied up in the woods, the one who the police didn’t believe existed, that haunts her still.
