Stephen King’s first editor delivers his own “nail-biting journey of suspense. Garrett’s prose crackles with life” (Cemetery Dance).
He rescued her from a raging river, risking his own life against blizzard-like conditions. He drove her to his home over treacherous icy roads to render treatment for exposure. But when Nancy Barnett was revived, she thought Wayne Crocker had kidnapped her, and Wayne doesn’t have the words to persuade her otherwise. Trapped together with no telephone or electricity, Wayne must keep Nancy from making an accusation that could imprison him until his dying day.
She owed him her life—but did she have to be his forever?
