Nora Roberts - the world's greatest storyteller. Abigail Lowery has a dark and terrifying secret. Aged just sixteen, she witnessed a shocking mafia murder. Narrowly escaping with her life, she was forced to leave her old identity - even her real name - behind for good. Fifteen years later Abigail is still hiding from the world - a semi-recluse in the quiet, rural town of Bickford, Arkansas. She has convinced herself that this is all she needs: peace, safety...and her faithful guard dog Bert. Perhaps now, at last, she can stop running. But Brooks Gleason, the local chief of police, has other ideas. Abigail intrigues him - and he'd like nothing better than to break through the walls she has built around herself. His persistence and determination to uncover the truth is unsettling, exciting - and dangerous. One way or another, it will change both their lives for ever.

When she was 16, brilliant Elizabeth Fitch rebelled and ended up witnessing a double murder involving the Russian mafia. Betrayed by insiders and nearly killed while in the witness protection program, she knew she couldn't trust the police; it was time to disappear. Twelve years later, still avoiding the Russian mob and re-invented as Abigail Lowery, Liz has carved out a quiet, reclusive life as a freelance computer programmer and security systems expert in Bickford, a small resort town in the Ozarks. But Abigail has attracted both the attention and interest of police chief Brooks Gleason, and he's not about to give up until he discovers what the intriguing beauty is running from. VERDICT A brilliant, slightly socially awkward heroine meets a puzzle-loving, protective hero in a taut, riveting drama that's guaranteed to keep the adrenaline flowing. Another memorable page-turner from Roberts's consistently remarkable pen. Roberts (The Next Always) lives in Keedysville, MD. (c) Copyright 2012.
