As a girl, Jane Killian had her beauty, her safety and almost her life stolen from her when a boat ran her over while she was swimming in the ocean. No one has ever listened when Jane insists that the boater did it on purpose.

Many years—and many reconstructive surgeries—later, Jane is finally happy. She's a successful artist with a loving husband and a baby on the way. Then her supposed loving husband is arrested for the murder of three women, and someone is leaving her messages on her bed, alluding to be the man from her past. Now Jane must figure out who is trying to finish the job they started years ago.

This is an engrossing story with many plot twists. Jane is a fleshed-out character who really comes to life. Her fear and pain jump off the page and heighten the suspense. Although the book would have been stronger if shortened, this is a highly enjoyable novel. (Jun., 384 pp., $19.95)
