Tess, a 16-year-old teenager, was found lying unconscious in the middle of nowhere, barely breathing, surrounded by bones and almost no recollection of what went down. Since that day, the paparazzi has been "on her tail", following the poor girl on every step of the way. She's the only lucky girl who survived a gruesome series of murders, and her words helped put the psycho behind bars.
But was he really the one responsible for all those killings? 20 years later, Tess is an artist raising a child on her own. One day, in the middle of an insanely cold night, she finds fresh flowers outside her window. The thing is - all the victims of the maniac had their graves full of flowers, and now she's terrified at the thought that she might've condemned the wrong fella.
What if she made a big mistake 2 decades ago and the killer is a free man, lurking in the shadows and waiting for the right time to strike? Tessa goes to the men who are working 24/7 to get the incarcerated man out of prison; however, the susans are not that big of a proof. At the same time, an innocent human being's life is hanging in the balance, and Tessa is offered to try hypnosis and bring her memories back.
But she is not quick to share all of her secrets and let people look into her soul. The clock is ticking, and there is no time to waste; the woman fears that her baby girl is in danger, and with the bad man breathing, she can't find peace. So, the only way to beat him is to face the demons from the past and confront the nightmares to figure out what really went down all those years ago. This book is gripping, riveting, original and breath-taking. Heaberlin wrote a shocking, heart-stopping mystery/psychological thriller.
