Synopsis

What would you do if the man of your dreams hides the soul of a killer?

Jim Beckett was everything she'd ever dreamed of...But two years after Tess married the decorated cop and bore his child, she helped put him behind bars for savagely murdering ten women. Even locked up in a maximum security prison, he vowed he would come after her and make her pay. Now the cunning killer has escaped—and the most dangerous game of all begins....

After a lifetime of fear, Tess will do something she's never done before. She's going to learn to protect her daughter and fight back, with the help of a burned-out ex-marine. As the largest manhunt four states have ever seen mobilizes to catch Beckett, the clock winds down to the terrifying reunion between husband and wife. And Tess knows that this time, her only choices are to kill—or be killed.


From the Paperback edition.

One of the best suspense stories I've ever read. Keeps you on the end of your seat till the end. The psychopathic killer is something. He outdoes the police every time and we just keep hoping till the end that they'll catch him. This is a 5 star book. Great suspense story. All the characters are interesting. Lisa Gardner sure knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat until the end. A great page turner.

One of this author's better books in my opinion. I enjoyed how the book portrayed Tess and her development into a stronger woman despite or perhaps because of her relationship with J.T. I certainly didn't see it coming when Marion (J.T.'s sister) walked out into the street and was shot, I had expected a better resolution for her issues but it added to the plot so I guess the author knew what she was doing.

This was the first Lisa Gardner book I ever read...and I have been hooked ever since. Twists and turns keep you turning the pages long into the night. Always eagerly awaiting the next book to get lost in!

Awesome. One of the best. Read the D.D. Warren series first though which means I knew a little more of the three characters ut still awesome.

I really enjoyed this book, it was the first book I've read but the author. The story gripped me and I couldn't put it down, which wasn't so good when I had to get up for work the next day!

I loved this book......could not put it down, turning page after page. It introduces so many characters and you really get involved with them. Only thing bad about it is it ended too soon but I am looking forward to reading all of Lisa Gardner's other books now. I like books that get straight into the nitty gritty of it....not messing around...and this does that, the story begins straight away!
