About this ebook

“A deep, dark, twisted nightmare of a ride” from the USA Today bestselling author of The Dead Girl in 2A (Miami Books Examiner).
In 1981, three fourteen-year-old boys witness a horrific murder in the Oregon woods near their homes. Sucked into becoming accomplices to the subsequent cover-up, they swear never to talk about what happened.

Thirty years later, Tommy Devereaux has become a bestselling author, using writing as his therapy. Finally, he is ready to tell the world what happened, even if he disguises the killing as fiction. But his life is set to unravel when he is approached by a woman who asks for his autograph, leaving behind a note which reads: “You didn’t even change my name.” Tommy’s worst nightmare has come true. A figure from his past has returned, threatening to divulge his darkest secret unless he agrees to do everything she asks of him. Thus begins a deadly cat-and-mouse game that can only end with one or both of their destructions.
“Wilson provides serious shivers for readers.”—Kirkus Reviews 
“Gripping, gory, and terrifying . . . impossible to put down, and the shock ending will leave readers reeling.”—Booklist
“Wilson is without a doubt one of the most talented authors today.”—Miami Books Examiner
