Nora Roberts - the world's greatest storyteller. Abigail Lowery has a dark and terrifying secret. Aged just sixteen, she witnessed a shocking mafia murder.
Narrowly escaping with her life, she was forced to leave her old identity - even her real name - behind for good.
Fifteen years later Abigail is still hiding from the world - a semi-recluse in the quiet, rural town of Bickford, Arkansas.
She has convinced herself that this is all she needs: peace, safety...and her faithful guard dog Bert.
Perhaps now, at last, she can stop running. But Brooks Gleason, the local chief of police, has other ideas.
Abigail intrigues him - and he'd like nothing better than to break through the walls she has built around herself.
His persistence and determination to uncover the truth is unsettling, exciting - and dangerous.
One way or another, it will change both their lives for ever.
