Kara Peterson last drove away from Paige, Ohio ten years ago after reporting her rape.
She thought she knew who was responsible. She thought it was over.
But she doesn't know everything that happened that night.
When her father passes away unexpectedly, Kara's forced to return to her hometown. Paige should be a safe little town, especially for the daughter of its favorite sheriff, but something's not right with Kara's memories. There are times that have gone missing. In fact, there are more and more of them the longer she stays in town.
Maybe it's her hometown getting to her. Or maybe it's just him.
