My son Clark and I live in a beautiful cabin outside a rural town, somewhere nobody will find us. I could not have found a more perfect place to start over, shielded by the trees and far away from prying eyes. But when I find a newspaper clipping on my porch, it drives fear into my bones. Widow wanted for murder screams the headline. And that’s my face in the picture, circled with red marker. I look out into the forest, but I can’t see anyone. How did they find me? And what do they want?
I don’t know where to run next, or how to make sure my son is safe. And deep down I know the only way I can finally be free is to find out what really happened that night a year ago, when my dear husband Brett died.
I’m sure I didn’t kill him… did I? But that night is a blur, and as I try to prove my innocence, the dark secrets I uncover force me to question everything I believed. The people I trusted most are not who I thought they were. And the person who is coming for me is very close to home…
An utterly heart-pounding and twisty psychological thriller that will keep you up all night. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, Behind Closed Doors and The Girl on the Train.
Previously published under the title The Widow's Cabin.
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.
Liz's story began in a refugee camp in Angola, where she spent the first eight years of her life. After that, she spent some years in Namibia (her home country), South Africa, and Germany. She now lives in Vienna, Austria, with her husband and two children. Liz wrote her first full-length novel at eighteen and hid it in a box under her bed. Several others soon followed it. Her passion lies in writing edge-of-the-seat psychological thrillers that give readers the same rush they would get on a rollercoaster.
