Overview
The bestselling author of Bring Her Home and Cemetery Girl, "one of the brightest and best crime fiction writers of our time" (Suspense Magazine) delivers a pulse-pounding thriller about a man who is haunted by a face from his past...
When Nick Hansen sees the young woman at the grocery store, his heart stops. She is the spitting image of his college girlfriend, Marissa Minor, who died in a campus house fire twenty years earlier. But when Nick tries to speak to her, she acts skittish and rushes off.
The next morning the police arrive at Nick's house and show him a photo of the woman from the store. She's been found dead, murdered in a local motel, with Nick's name and address on a piece of paper in her pocket.
Convinced there's a connection between the two women, Nick enlists the help of his college friend Laurel Davidson to investigate the events leading up to the night of Marissa's death. But the young woman's murder is only the beginning...and the truths Nick uncovers may make him wish he never doubted the lies.

At the start of this satisfying thriller set in a small Ohio college town from Bell (The Forgotten Girl), housing authority caseworker Nick Hansen spots a young woman in a grocery store who bears a startling resemblance to Marissa Minor, the love of his life, who died 20 years earlier at age 20 in a house fire. When Nick approaches her, she flees. The next day the police question him. The woman Nick saw, 20-year-old Emily Joy Russell, has been murdered, and in her pocket was a paper with his name and address on it. In the course of trying to find out about Emily and why she had been looking for him, Nick uncovers heartbreaking crimes from the past. Insights provided by a number of people close to him, including his ex-wife, Gina, force Nick to reevaluate his relationship with Marissa. Distinctive characters and a smartly crafted plot lift this well above the genre average. Author tour. Agent: Laney Katz Becker, Lippincott, Massie, McQuilkin Literary Agents. (July)
