This meeting of the three-member Survivors Club is unlike any before it. For on this morning, after a year's wait, their rapist and attacker Eddie Como heads to trial. However, as Jillian Hayes, Carol Rosen and Meg Pesaturo sit in a restaurant, someone is taking deadly vengeance on Eddie. A sniper shoots Eddie on his way into the courthouse and shortly thereafter the gunman is killed by a car bomb.

After suddenly losing his wife to cancer and then dealing with the horrendous case of a serial child killer, Det. Roan Griffin finally just lost it. Eighteen months later, he's back on the job, in charge of the high-profile Como case. Could one or more of the three women have arranged for Eddie's demise? Then, impossibly, Eddie Como's DNA is found at the scene of another rape/murder. A killer is stalking the streets, and Jillian, Carol and Meg may be at risk.

What a thrill ride! This book will keep you guessing and cemented to the edge of your seat. Lisa Gardner's skill at dreaming up intricate and utterly gripping plots is a genuine gift! (Jun., 358 pp., $23.95)
