"A psychologically engrossing thriller." Kirkus Reviews
Jake Travis searches for the man who abducted and killed his sister and only sibling over 30 years ago, while on a family vacation in Florida. She went to their motel room to get the book "Matilda." She was never seen again.
The man who was once the primary suspect has washed up on a beach nears Jake's home. He penned a confession just days before his mysterious death, admitting to killing the young girl. Jake suspects that the confession was forced and that DNA was tainted.
Jake's vengeful quest tangles him in a web of murky and powerful figures. They have a vested interest in keeping him from learning of his sister's fate. As Jake forges ahead, seeking both justice for his sister and personal closure, he questions if he will ever spring free of his past, or whether the past will shackle him in its chains.
In Naked We Came Jake learns that the longest road leads to the beginning."This heart racing thriller is dripping with style." Florida Weekly
