To Rebecca it was a brave decision that led to her freedom from domestic abuse. To Solomon it was the ultimate betrayal.
It's been ten years since Rebecca's testimony saw Solomon locked away. Enough time for the nightmares to recede, the nerves to relax; enough time to rebuild her life and put the past behind her.
Then one day a phone rings in her bedroom - but it's not her phone. Solomon has been in her home, and has a very simple message for her: for each of the ten years he has spent in jail, Rebecca must witness a crime. And, to make matters worse, she has to choose the victims.
Fail to respond and you get hurt. Talk to police and you die. Ready to play? You have sixty seconds to decide...
As the crimes grow more severe, the victims closer to home, Rebecca is forced to confront a past she had hoped was gone forever.

The main character, Rebecca, is weak and annoying
I have read a great many books about spousal abuse, and I have never seen a less sympathetic female lead.
The book had a couple surprises so I would think some readers might find this interesting.
I did not like the main character at all. The things she allowed to happen were reprehensible. I kept waiting for her to get a back bone and stand up to the guy.
I totally agree with one reviewer who commented on some of the ludicrous incidents with the home monitoring system. Rebecca knows Soloman is some computer wizard but she doesn't even think about the phone call from a monitoring company wanting to "upgrade" their home system.
There are some subjects brought up but never explained or expanded upon. Ie: Solomans school experiences, his sentencing to prison.
I thought the narrators did a very good job especially in light of the material they were reading.
The voice of Soloman was convincingly threatening and evil.
I was definitely angry at Rebecca and went so far as to yell at her a few times.
How could she stand by and "witness" the awful things happening to her friends, neighbors and family?
I obviously did not care for this book at all.
