The Stephen King quote on the cover may give a hint as to the direction Nora Roberts has taken in this novel. Prepare yourself for a much more disturbing style in this story of a woman haunted by her past and the terrible nightmares she is unable to escape. This one may not appeal to all Nora Roberts fans but her writing is still as good as ever, just slightly more un-nerving.
Clare Kimball is a critically acclaimed sculptress. But success can not burn away the vague, troubling memories, the half-remembered nightmares that have plagued her since childhood. These phantoms of the past have drawn her home to Maryland, to the small town where she grew up and where her father died in circumstances never really explained.
Emmitsboro is just as Clare remembered - the same familiar faces, the same chatty gossip over the counter at the local diner. Nothing much has changed - except Cameron Rafferty. Once the high school bad boy, he landed on the right side of the law and is now the town sheriff. Clare finds herself falling for Cam's charms all over again. But the past Clare has come to lay to rest has risen up with a vengeance, rocking the town in the form of a brutal murder. As the investigation gets under way, it's clear the death is linked to something very sinister - something clearly connected with Claire's return.
