Brett is sick and his wife wants him to recover. He is getting tired and he wants her to end his pain. His parents refuse to accept their son’s fate. When “Zoe” finds out Brett has passed, she is numb. His mother Nora blames her for Brett’s death. Zoe can barely grieve because of Nora’s blame and her resulting bitterness. More than that Zoe is plagued with lingering doubts about how Brett died. She takes her son and flees to a cabin in a small town. Is she wanted for the murder of Brett? Is that why she ran, and even changed her name and her son’s name?
With hazy memories of the night her husband died, and always looking over her shoulder, Zoe is jumpy. Very jumpy. Trusting anyone is a big deal to her and things often seem hopeless. While not surprised that this well written psychological thriller had more than a few twists and turns, I will definitely say the ones in this book by L. G. Davis really caught me by surprise.
The sense of danger Zoe faced followed her everywhere, and all she wanted was to be there for her son.This thrilling read started off with incredible suspense and ended with a nail-biting conclusion.
