Publisher's Summary

It’s been 30 years since the terrifying abduction of twin sisters Rebecca and Molly Underhill by a deranged man who lived in a cabin behind their house. Fearful of retribution against their family, the girls kept the incident secret. Rebecca, now a painter and art teacher, suddenly begins getting mysterious text messages. Is Molly - long lost to cancer - trying to communicate? It couldn’t be their attacker from so many years ago; he was imprisoned for a similar crime at about that same time. Surely he’d still be in jail or dead by now - wouldn’t he?
When one of Rebecca’s art students - an autistic savant - gives her a series of paintings, Rebecca realizes the paintings’ scenes match the nightmares she’s had every night since the horrific ordeal three decades earlier.
Escape into a pulse-pounding story that poses the question: What if you were forced to relive the most horrifying moment of your life?

So bad it was painful.

Any additional comments?

I am thankful this book was free. I gave up on it in the middle of the climax. I tried to overlook the over dramatic and terrible writing and give the author the benefit of the doubt that some wonderful clever twist would make the seemingly absurd plot less silly at some point. It became clear towards the end that, no, this book was just truly horrible and got worse and worse as it went along and someone should have stopped the author from publishing it. Instead of wasting any more time finishing it, I read the negative reviews and verified that there were no redeeming qualities waiting for me at the end of the story. I have NEVER given up on a book that I had already given so much time to until now. As an artist myself, I hate to leave bad reviews, but this author really needs to find a different creative outlet than writing. Or at least spare the public from it until he has developed his craft quite a bit more. The narration was tolerable at first. By the middle/end it became SO over dramatic I started to feel physically ill. Don't believe the positive reviews. They were either written by 13 year olds or paid for or fake. Either that or the world truly is spiraling into the horrible prophecies foretold in Idiocracy.

A Decent Mystery that Falls Off at the End

This felt like two different books. The first part was great and suspenseful, but the second part felt a bit cheesy, predictable and over dramatic. The narrator is good. I'd still recommend a listen. I'm sure many folks aren't as critical as I am. ;)
