Description
David Loogan's dark past is revealed in this prequel to Bad Things Happen--the critically acclaimed mystery that Stephen King called a "great f***ing book."

On a rainy night in April, a chance encounter draws David into a romance with Jana Fletcher, a beautiful young law student. Jana is an enigma: living in a run-down apartment with only the barest of possessions, sporting a bruise on her cheek that she refuses to explain. David would like to know her secrets, but he lets them lie--until it's too late.

When Jana is brutally murdered, the police consider David a prime suspect. But as he sets out to uncover the truth, he soon learns that Jana's death may be related to an earlier murder, one that she was obsessed with during the last weeks of her life.

And as he retraces her steps, he begins to realize that he's treading a very dangerous path--and that her killer is watching every move he makes.
