Publisher's Weekly Raves: "A moving mix of high suspense and romance, this haunting Halloween thriller will propel readers to bolt their doors at night."
"A gripping story of small town secrets. The suspense will keep you guessing. The characters will steal your heart." –New York Times Bestselling Author Lisa Gardner
Since the day her baby sister was taken, Holly's mind hasn't been the same. PTSD, panic attacks, nightmares and blocked memories have plagued her ever since. And now they've returned.
Hard-edged Detective Vince O'Malley's most recent case penetrated even his protective shell. Ordered to take time off to recover, he can't let go, and on his own, follows the clues to Holly's small upstate NY town.
His presence stirs ghosts from the past, shadows of a little girl lost, the suspicions of some tight-lipped locals with secrets to hide, and more than that inside Holly's fragile mind and untouched heart.
"Maggie Shayne's books have a permanent spot on my keeper shelf. She writes wonderful stories combining romance with page-turning thrills, and I highly recommend her to any fan of romantic suspense." –New York Times Bestselling Author Karen Robards
