The fear is terrifying, but the truth is even worse.
When police rescue five-year-old Jenna Thompson from the closet where she's been held captive, they tell her she's lucky. Compared to her family, it's true. But even with their killer dead, Jenna can't find peace twenty-five years later.
Jenna returns to Nashville, the city where she lost so much. Instead of closure, she finds a new horror. Detective Rick Morgan needs Jenna's expertise in identifying the skeletal remains of a young child.
Now other women are dying. And as the links between these brutal killings and Jenna's past becomes clear, she knows this time, a madman will leave no survivors.
