About this ebook

From New York Times Bestselling Author Wendy Corsi Staub comes a gripping novel of psychological suspense, as a young foundling’s path to her biological parents leads to a killer with a chilling agenda.

May, 1968

On a murky pre-dawn Mother’s Day, sinister secrets play out miles apart in New York City. In Harlem, a church janitor finds an innocent newborn in a basket. In Brooklyn, an elusive serial killer prowls slumbering families, leaving a trail of blood and a twisted calling card. Cloaked in lies, these seemingly unrelated lives—and deaths—are destined to intersect on a distant, blood-soaked day.

October, 1987

Reeling from shocking personal discoveries, two strangers navigate a world where nothing is as it seems. Amelia Crenshaw embarks on a search to discover the truth about the birth mother who abandoned her, never suspecting she’s on a collision course with a killer. Detective Stockton Barnes, a brash young NYPD detective, trails a missing millionaire whose disappearance is rooted in a nightmare that began twenty years ago.

The past returns with a brutal vengeance as a masked predator picks off victims whose fates intertwine with a notorious murder spree solved back in ‘68—or was it?

Twenty years ago a vicious killer started killed entire families ... all except the teenage daughters of each family. They were brutalized but left alive. A janitor finds an abandoned baby in the church where he works. To him, this is a message from God. The only thing that this man and wife had been denied was a child. He smuggles the baby out and takes her home. Today.. someone is killing off the daughters that were spared so many years ago. The infant foundling is searching for her birth parents .. and heading into a collision course with a killer. Detective Stockton Barnes is searching for a missing millionaire who also has ties to the past crimes. All these events leave Detective Barnes in the dark ... until they start merging. This is a killer like he has never seen before and he prays he never will again. Lots of suspense ... many characters to keep track of ... and an absolute surprising ending. This is a cleverly written psychological thriller with an edginess that keeps the reader riveted. Many thanks to the author / William Morrow Books / Edelweiss for the advanced digital copy. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

The characters, the story, it all unfolds in a good pace. Very nice twists here and there that made it hard to put down. The only thing I didn't quite liked was the end, it made me feel like it was an incomplete draft of a very good thriller.

I believe that I may have read everything this author has ever written...if I'm wrong in that then I can say that what I have read has never disappointed me. This may not be to everyone's liking as it ...
