Publisher's Summary

Olivia's parents had been one of Hollywood's glittering golden couples...until the night the monster came. The monster who destroyed their beautiful home and took her mother away from her forever. The monster with the face of her father....Now a young woman, Olivia finds her memory of that night has faded. Her mother's grieving family spared no effort to keep Olivia safe from the publicity, taking her to grow up in the beautiful natural splendor of the Pacific Northwest. But, despite the terror and the years that have passed, a part of her still yearns to recall those horrifying events, to know the truth about her childhood.With the help of a young writer named Noah Brady, she could have the chance. The son of the police officer who found four-year-old Olivia cowering in her bedroom closet so many years ago, Noah wants to reconstruct that infamous night - and tell the story that has become part of Hollywood legend.With Noah, Olivia has a chance to confront her tragic past - and the longings of her own lonely heart. But before she can confront her past, she must safeguard her future. For in this forest haven, this remote corner of the country, the monster walks again.


What the Critics Say

"Her artful manipulation of the plot, contrived so that amour and horror escalate in tandem, reaffirms her ability to deliver entertaining fiction." (Publishers Weekly)
"Sandra Burr adds her considerable talents to this tightly written romantic thriller. Her child's voice is eerily memorable, her teenage Livy aches of womanhood, but she shines with the adult Livy and Noah. Their sexual tension is palpable, and the story's suspense is even more tightly strung." (Library Journal)

River's End

Great book! I was sorry when it ended. The narrator did an excellent job with the different voices. I love Nora Roberts to begin with and haven't listened to (or read) a good Nora Roberts book in a while. I am going to order another one next. I totally recommend this book for those who like a good mystery, love story.

Another Nora Roberts Winner

I really enjoyed this book. I was hooked from the first 5 minutes and enjoyed the development and maturation of the characters. I loved the beauty brought to my imagination with Roberts' narrative about the Black Hills. And the animals, it was awesome. I didn't like the villain (I know you're not supposed to) because I thought the reason he was fixated on the female character was loose. Beyond that it was a great listen. And Sandra Burr did a wonderful job with the narration with the exception of the voice she gave Lucy. That one was irritating. But just how many voices can one narrator have??? :)
