This tense and twisting novel of identity and suspense marks an intriguing new departure for cozy mystery writer Karen E. Olson.
Nicole Jones if that is her real name - lives off the grid. She doesn t have a licence, passport or bank account. She definitely doesn t own a computer. She hasn t left her refuge, Block Island, in fifteen years. She's hidden from the world and she likes it that way. Nicole doesn t use a computer, not because she's afraid of it, but because she's afraid of what she a badass hacker in her past life would do with it.
When the last person Nicole wants to see suddenly reappears, using a name he knows will draw her out, Nicole realizes that her time hidden is now ending. Her past secrets tumbling into the open and her carefully-constructed new life set to fall apart, Nicole must re-hone her long-suppressed computer skills in order to escape from an island that is no longer a haven, but suddenly a prison.
