When a woman is kidnapped by a psychopath and eventually escapes, everyone thinks her nightmare must be over. So why is she still so terrified? Is she paranoid or is her life still in danger? Misery meets The Collector in a nail-biting thriller with a killer twist. Read it with the lights on. On the day she was abducted, Annie O'Sullivan, a 32-year-old real estate agent, had three goals - sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she's about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all. Interwoven with the story of the year Annie spent as the captive of a psychopath in a remote mountain cabin, which unfolds through sessions with her psychiatrist, is a second narrative recounting events following her escape - her struggle to piece her shattered life back together and the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor. The truth doesn't always set you free.
