Story Description: 
HarperCollins Publisher|January 14, 20132|Mass Market Paperbound|ISBN: 978-0-06-207032-6 
From the New York Times bestselling author comes a novel of suspense so terrifying it may make you afraid of the dark… 
Allison Taylor MacKenna feels as though she’s awakened at last from a ten-year-long nightmare.  But her darkest hour has yet to come. 
Nestled in the warm, domestic cocoon of loving husband and family, Allison finally feels safe – unaware that a stranger’s brutal murder on a Caribbean island is the first step in an intricate plan to destroy everything in her life. 
For seasoned NYPD Detective Rocky Manzillo, the signs are clear that something terrible has emerged from the shadows, a murder victim left without a face and a faded photograph that yields a startling connection. 
Now, as Allison’s murky memories of a troubled childhood creep back to light, a cunning predator who shares her history prepares to enact a horrifying retribution – and won’t stop killing until Allison face a shocking truth…and pays the ultimate price. 
My Review: 
I didn’t enjoy this novel nearly as much as I have other Staub novels.  It seems to me that Ms. Staub is almost trying to rush to see how many books she can pump out in a year or so and this, I personally feel, is affecting her writing immensely.  I used to be completely glued to the pages of her books but found this one to be a bit of a yawner to be quite honest and felt it went on and on a bit too long in places, almost as if she is adding words just to lengthen the novel.  I was a tad disappointed in this book and wouldn’t necessarily recommend it.  However, someone else might pick it up and think it’s the best book they’ve ever read, but after having read every single book Ms. Staub has ever written to date, this one was a complete let down for me.
