Description

An unbearable loss.
A shattered life.
And a killer who wants more.

On the edge of the North Carolina woods, behind an isolated modern house, the watcher patiently waits. He knows all about the couple who live there--a talented surgeon and a successful businessman. He knows all about the people in their lives. He knows they are numb with grief. And he knows what is going to happen next--and why.

For Dr. Natasha McCarty and her husband, Ward, their son's tragic death has shaped every moment of the last year. But to add to their pain, a new strangeness is suddenly engulfing them. Natasha's hands have begun to shake. A prized memento has been stolen. Then a sordid scandal explodes out of nowhere, one that threatens everything they've built, and brings friends, strangers--and enemies--into their lives. And now, as the anniversary of their son's death approaches, for reasons they can't guess, from a place they can't see, an extraordinary evil will emerge before their eyes. Because a killer has chosen this day as their last.
