She was his great love, the woman he'd adored since they were children. But a few months into their marriage, Elizabeth Beck was abducted, then found dead in a ditch, the brutalized victim of a serial killer. Not even the killer's capture and conviction could bring comfort to her devastated husband, Dr. David Beck.
Now, eight years later, Beck's life is ripped apart once again, this time by a mysterious e-mail suggesting that Elizabeth may still be alive. It could be just a cruel joke, but Beck, still grieving, cannot abandon hope. The trail to the truth is filled with treachery, and Beck uncovers one terrible deed after another, some recent, some stretching back to before Elizabeth's abduction. What's the most frightening of all is that the trail leads directly to him, setting him up as the prime suspect in the crimes.
Now, as Beck eludes the police, he must find his hidden enemy, a person without remorse who's using him as a pawn to keep the truth covered up. In this deadly game of lies and manipulation, Beck must decide whom to trust and whom to fear--because one wrong move could end his search for Elizabeth and cost him his own life.

Not worthy

The editing is awful. The book has been "chppoed" up by the editor. A good mystery but unnecessarily violent and whoever prepared the abridged version should not be used again.

Entertaining, relaxing read

I enjoyed this book because it was not a demanding read, yet kept my attention even in abridged form. Normally, I don't like abridged books because I don't get to know the characters enough to care what happens to them. I would not say I really cared, but it was like a TV show, mindless entertainment, with a good dose of action and intrigue.

I really enjoyed this story. The narration was good and the story was enthralling. It was very enjoyable.
