Publisher's Summary

An Amazon Charts, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestseller.

Number one New York Times bestselling master of suspense Dean Koontz takes listeners on a twisting journey of lost love, impossible second chances, and terrifying promises.

A decade ago, Emily Carlino vanished after her car broke down on a California highway. She was presumed to be one of serial killer Ronny Lee Jessup’s victims whose remains were never found. 

Writer David Thorne still hasn’t recovered from losing the love of his life, or from the guilt of not being there to save her. Since then, he’s sought closure any way he can. He even visits regularly with Jessup in prison, desperate for answers about Emily’s final hours so he may finally lay her body to rest. Then David meets Maddison Sutton, beguiling, playful, and keenly aware of all David has lost. But what really takes his breath away is that everything about Maddison, down to her kisses, is just like Emily. As the fantastic becomes credible, David’s obsession grows, Maddison’s mysterious past deepens - and terror escalates. 

Is she Emily? Or an irresistible dead ringer? Either way, the ultimate question is the same: What game is she playing? Whatever the risk in finding out, David’s willing to take it for this precious second chance. It’s been ten years since he’s felt this inspired, this hopeful, this much in love...and he’s afraid.

A Bit of a Let Down

I just found the ending all wrong, almost childish. So very slow and drawn out then wrapped up so quickly. I expected the main character to die as his cheating caused his girlfriend's 'death'.

Load of rubbish.

Don’t think I will finish as I really don’t care what happens. It’s just stupid. I wasted so much time thinking it might get better. I’ve never read a dean Koonyz book and won’t read any more.

The most frustrating book ever

This book is the most frustrating obtusely written story I have ever read. The idea this writer has of women and their complexity is that of a shallow puddle. He writes women like a 15 year old boy, no depth and to only exist as a accessories to the story of a man. This is a complete eye-roll from start to finish with the most outlandish and un-realistically idiotic endings. I knew this ending would be disappointing and the only way to survive it is to turn the speed up to 1.7. Dean Koontz, I would like to call you to yell at your for a little bit after enduring this book.
