About The Book:
How far would you go to keep your secrets hidden in the shadows?
Few people know Addison McGuire is haunted by her past. When she’s penning her bestselling true crime series, Addie writes about bold heroines without fear. But in real life, Addie is bound by the trauma she experienced the night of her high school graduation. Now, Addie spends her days with her constant companion, her mastiff, Bo, and lives vicariously through her brother Jack. Their father’s golden child, Jack has all the things Addie will never have: their father’s approval, a rock-solid marriage, and a wonderful child. But Jack is also Addie’s secret keeper. He listens and understands. And it was Jack told her that if she wanted to stay safe, she should never come back home. It’s no way to live, but Addie’s accepted it.
Except that lately, the little things have begun to slip through her fingers. She’s begun to drink too much. To forget the little day to day things—but never the memories of her midnight trips to the club, where she seeks sex with nameless men she’ll never see again.
Worse, her old nightmares have resurfaced to steal her sleep at night—and her peace of mind during the day. Spinning in old habits, Addie reaches out to Jack, but her calls, texts and emails go unanswered.
Because Jack has been in a terrible accident … and will never be there for Addie again.
Reeling with loss, Addie returns home for the first time in a decade to bury her brother— only to learn that immediately leaving, as she’s planned, isn’t an option. Because her four-year-old niece, Lou, needs her.
Lou helps Addie find strength she didn’t know she had. Good thing, as Addie soon finds herself face to face with her attacker—now the chief of police—who ominously warns her: “Go home.”
Addie refuses, but her grip on reality wavers as she becomes increasingly untrusting of herself, unable to gauge what is real and what is not. Are her nightmares signs that someone is watching her and waiting in the shadows—or figments of her imagination? The only way Addie can find out is to break her silence … and face her attacker once and for all.
