It was supposed to be a quiet dinner party with her colleagues, not the scene of a murder.
But the shooting of a stranger on her front lawn is only the first in a string of events that have Dr. Shannon Frasier's life teetering on the edge of chaos: She's unable to make the deeper commitment her boyfriend deserves. Her sister shows up at Shannon's home needing a place to stay, but with no promise she'll stay clean and sober. And her father is diagnosed with cancer.
Then Shannon's life stops teetering and plunges into the abyss. Because the person behind the guttural voice on the phone wants to know what the stranger said before he died. And he won't stop until Shannon tells him what he wants to know--even if she doesn't have it.
He's coming for her. She's not sure the police on the case can be trusted. And her only hope of escape--for herself and those she loves--is to overcome her buried past.
