Overview
A shocking 30-year-old secret returns to haunt thriller writer Tommy Devereaux in this nerve-shredding tale of suspense

In 1981, three fourteen-year-old boys witness a horrific murder in the Oregon woods near their homes. Sucked into becoming accomplices to the subsequent cover-up, they swear never to talk about what happened.

Thirty years later, Tommy Devereaux has become a bestselling author, using writing as his therapy. Finally, he is ready to tell the world what happened, even if he disguises the killing as fiction. But his life is set to unravel when he is approached by a woman who asks for his autograph, leaving behind a note which reads: 'You didn't even change my name.' Tommy's worst nightmare has come true. A figure from his past has returned, threatening to divulge his darkest secret unless he agrees to do everything she asks of him. Thus begins a deadly cat-and-mouse game that can only end with one or both of their destructions.

Wilson (Final Crossing) takes a stab at a horror thriller in this rather tepid story of a novelist’s complicity in a bloody crime. In 1981, Tommy Devereaux was a 14-year-old living in Lind Falls, Ore. He, along with two other teenagers, saw a younger boy murdered by a woman named Elizabeth, who swore all three to silence. Tommy, now a bestselling thriller writer living with his wife and two children in Denver, has used this incident as the basis of his forthcoming book. He is surprised, however, when Elizabeth reenters his life and threatens to expose his secret unless he obeys her wishes. Desperate to protect his career and family, Tommy becomes increasingly involved with Elizabeth, who boasts of having had a prolific career as a serial killer since their last encounter. Wilson references but rarely comes close to equaling genre classics like Stephen King’s Misery in this middling chiller. Agent: Pam Ahearn, Ahearn Agency. (June)
