Welcome back to Virtue Falls, Washington, where one woman is being held captive by her own delusions. . .
The survivor of a college dorm massacre, a woman accused of her lover's murder, Madeline Hewitson is haunted by ghosts and tormented by a killer only she can see. She's living in a nightmare, and fears no one will ever understand--nor believe--her until, one night, she crashes her car into her neighbor's house. There she finds Jacob Denisov, a military veteran who exists in his own world of darkness and self-destruction. Jacob recognizes a kindred spirit in Maddie, and wonders what she fears more than herself. Has someone caught her in a twisted labyrinth of revenge, redemption, and madness? With Jacob's help, Maddie might just find a way to fight back when her imaginary killer takes form. But will she be strong enough to triumph--or is she up against no more than a shadow, an illusion...that is watching Maddie's every move?
"Smart, dramatic...with unexpected twists, psychological tension, and emotional depth."--Kirkus Reviews on Christina Dodd's Because I'm Watching.
