A successful lawyer and loving mother, Nina Bloom would do anything to protect the life she`s built in New York ? including lying to everyone, even her daughter, about her past. But when an innocent man is framed for murder, she knows that she can`t let him pay for the real killer`s crimes. Nina`s secret life began eighteen years ago. She had looks to die for, a handsome police-officer husband, and a carefree life in Key West. When she learned she was pregnant with their first child, her happiness was almost overwhelming. But Nina`s world is shattered when she unearths a terrible secret that causes her to run for her life and change her identity. Now, years later, Nina risks everything she`s earned to return to Florida and confront the murderous evil she fled. In a story of wrenching suspense, James Patterson gives us his most head-spinning, action-filled story yet ? a Hitchcock-like blend of unquenchable drama and pleasure.
