Though they seem to have everything, Hannah Parks has watched her husband, Dallin, become increasingly distant. Her hope is buoyed when the couple decides to start a family, but what Dallin reveals in his sleep one night rocks Hannah to her core. As she starts to investigate a much darker side of Dallin than she ever knew existed, Hannah peels away the layers of a diseased relationship closely tied to her own abusive past.
When Dallin attempts to have Hannah abducted, she is forced to run, doing so with the aid of a man named Black - an ex-con and expert at helping people disappear. Together they must keep Hannah safe from her husband's far-reaching grasp, all the while trying to solve the mystery behind Dallin's sudden violence. Does Hannah's dark family history hold the key to her survival?
"Gritty, unflinching, and sometimes violent, this thriller is reminiscent of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl and the television series The Equalizer. The characters are intriguing and the writing deliciously descriptive. Adrenaline junkies and fans of darker crime fiction will take to this book, which is compelling and exciting enough to be read in one sitting." (Library Journal)
"Outstanding paranoid thriller." (Publishers Weekly)
"In addition to its rollicking pace and complex characters, the book's turns of phrase and evocative imagery make it enjoyable. 'Hannah's premarital fling is a romance that lasted not much longer than the flowers.' A promontory is described as 'a snake of land'. Hannah thinks of the color black: 'She could hide in [it]. Wrap it around her.' Thriller aficionados, especially women, will wrap themselves in this novel's pages with gusto." (ForeWord Reviews)
