On the run from her controlling, violent husband, Thomas, designer Kate Whitehead calls herself "Tricia Campbell" and lives with firefighter Scott McCall. Raising her son in peace, Kate is grateful to have escapedand content to let Thomas and the rest of the world believe she's dead. Then her best friend vanishes and Thomas is suddenly suspected of killing them both. Kate's the only one who knows better, and she's torn between the truth and the status quo. Both have a price attached; the question is, which will Kate pay?
Though Kate's motivation in staying hiddenprotecting her sonis believable, her choices and actions seem questionable and extreme. And Thomas is a stock suspense character: the psychotic ex-husband bent on destroying the heroine. There's no real sense of what makes him tick, and that badly weakens the story.
