A very exciting thriller.
None of them could forget the tragic, brutal murder of Nina Peterson. Not her husband, Steve Peterson, ravaged by her loss and raging for revenge, nor his six-year-old son Neil, a terrified witness to his mother's slaying. Not Sharon Martin, who loves them both and wishes only to ease their pain and hurt, nor Ronald Thompson, who sits wrongly convicted of the murder on the eve of his execution. Certainly not the stranger who had killed once in psychopathic glee, who has not finished with any of them, who lives for the moment when he can kill again and again.

Ronald Thompson knows he never killed Nina Peterson... yet in two days the state of Connecticut will take his life, having found him guilty via due process of law. But Thompson's death will not stop the pain and anger of Nina's husband, Steve. Thompson's death will not still the fears of Nna's six-year-old son, Neil, witness to his mother's brutal slaying. Not even the love and friendship of Sharon Martin, a journalist who is slowly becoming a part of their world, will ever erase their bitter memories. Only time, perhaps, will heal their wounds. But in the shadows a stranger waits, a cunning psychopath who has killed before, who has unfinished business at the Peterson home...
