Publisher's Summary

The wet sheet slipped slowly from her face, and she began to count. There were 11, in all. She was last in line, but he was getting closer. He'd be to her soon....

As though stumbling out of a nightmare, rookie cop Alex Kincaid awakens in her car, dazed and confused. Parked on an unfamiliar street, she's outside an unfamiliar home with no recollection of how she got there, and no memory of the night before.

Then, her nightmare becomes reality.

Alex's first call of the day takes her to the same street, to the same house, where a man has been brutally killed. Alex thinks the man is a perfect stranger - until she finds herself the main suspect in his murder.

And now, as she races to clear her name, she's haunted by memories of a horrific 30-year-old crime - a crime that links her to the dead man...and marks her as the killer's next target.

Very Enjoyable!

I found this book to be very good. The story is one of Girards older works, back in the day of pagers and pay phones with few cell/car phones. There were some weak spots, few books do not. Overall it was satisfying from start to end. I found the narration very good.

Started hopeful, ended ok

To begin with, the narrator’s voice would get tense to almost cracking in sections that did not call for it. And she did not do the best at changing pitch for a few characters. Maybe it was the style Of the recording. The story was ok, kinda predictable with a lethal weapon style young cop gone rouge. But weird. A twist at the end was nice. I kept going because I wanted to know how it all ended. But it was a struggle. The main character came across sometimes more petulant versus tough.
