Publisher's Summary

In the new nail-shredding novel from New York Times best-seller Laura Lippman, Eliza Benedict’s past returns to haunt her when the serial killer she escaped from as a young girl walks back into her life.

Twenty-five years ago, he stole her innocence. Now he wants to get in touch. Eliza Benedict cherishes her quiet existence with her successful husband and children in the leafy suburbs of suburban Washington. But her tranquillity is shattered when she receives a letter from the last person she ever expects - or wants - to hear from: Walter Bowman. In the summer of 1985, when she was 15-years-old, Eliza was kidnapped by serial killer Walter Bowman, who targeted young girls like Eliza in a sexually motivated killing spree. Now facing lethal injection on death row, Walter is keen to make contact with Eliza, seemingly motivated by a desire to atone for his sins before he finally meets his maker.

Carefully, with some reluctance, she lets Walter enter her life, first by letter, then in person. Walter is keen to convince Eliza that he has changed, but it becomes clear that Walter has more of an agenda than he first revealed. Cunning and manipulative, Walter is never more dangerous than when he can't get what he wants, and he wants something very badly. Disturbingly, he seems to have an ally working in the outside, one who seems to know everything about Eliza's life - including where she lives.

As Walter once again manages to exert his malign influence, Eliza must draw on all of her reserves of wisdom and strength as the battle of predator and prey once more plays out and she must face the past head on if she is to survive.

A taut and mesmerizing novel by the highly-acclaimed author of Life Sentences and Every Secret Thing.

    "I Must have Missed Something"

    Love Laura Lippman but this story was lacking to me. I couldn't understand why the main character entertained the villian. The special telephone? Really? Some parts of the story seemed to have started out with a purpose but never really went anywhere. A little dissapointed but it won't stop me from looking for other Lippman books.

    "Didn't really like it..."

    This was very dull. I couldnt get to the entire book because it didnt hold my attention. It could be a good book but was lacking something. I was very disappointed. I have read other bools by Laura Lippman and loved them. But this was not good at all.
