Twenty-three years ago Anna North survived a living nightmare. A madman kidnapped her, cut off her pinkie, then vanished. Today Anna lives in New Orleans, writing dark thrillers under another name. She finally feels safe.

Suddenly Anna's quiet life takes a frightening turn. Letters start to arrive from a disturbed fan. Anna is followed, her apartment broken into. Then a close friend disappears.

Anna turns to homicide detective Quentin Malone, but Malone's more concerned with the recent murders of two women in the French Quarter. But after a third victim is found-a redhead like Anna, her pinkie severed-Malone is forced to acknowledge that Anna is his link to the killer...and could be the next target.

Now Anna must face the horrifying truth-her past has caught up with her. The nightmare has begun again.
