Publisher's Summary

Lisa Taylor had friends, family, and a job she loved back in Cleveland. But when her husband, Jeff, lands the promotion of a lifetime, she gives it all up to stand by him. Their whirlwind move to Miami feels like an adventure, and their idyllic new neighborhood is the perfect place to start a family. But their dreams are shattered when a stranger breaks into their house, holding a knife to Lisa’s throat before Jeff can chase him off. 

Suddenly, every sacrifice Lisa made is like a loss she’ll never recover from. But Jeff makes it clear there’s too much at stake to return to Ohio. Isolated and afraid, Lisa becomes a hostage in her own home. She can’t shake the feeling she’s being watched. And with the man she married growing increasingly unrecognizable, she’s starting to wonder whether their hasty move was to pursue a better life - or escape a chilling past that won’t be outrun.

Very Well Done Suspenseful Psychological Thriller

Former journalist Rick Mofina must be pulling from his career in crime reporting to write this crazy psychological thriller. So many red herrings it keeps your head spinning.
About 1/3 of the way into this book I thought the story was so predictable. Half way through and I changed my mind and picked a different antagonist. Then 2/3 through and my theory was blown to bits! The remaining characters were either too nice or too obvious.
Lisa Taylor, the protagonist has a childhood secret that makes her feel guilty about her fortunate life. Her husband Jeff also has a childhood secret, but his is much worse and makes him appear less trustworthy. But he is also very volatile and if not kept in check can easily get out of hand. Lisa can trust no one and there’s a murderer on the loose.
Mark Owen does a great job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Great Story

This story came to life as the narrator guided us through this tale. I appreciate the narrator offering character development via experienced voice projection. I really enjoyed this author and narrator. Well done!
