When your life is a lie, how do you live with the truth?

Peace of mind is all Greg Cole has wanted since the murder of his twin sister, Scarlett.
In his new sun-soaked Florida life, he thought he had found it. But when Scarlett's killer is released early from prison with a cast-iron alibi, Greg realizes that his past is about to explode into his present, with terrifying consequences.
To expose the truth he must open up old wounds. As a talk therapist, Greg knows all about dark secrets, but when a childhood friendship comes to the fore and the police turn their spotlight on him, the thought of analyzing his own psyche is a disturbing prospect. How far can he trust his own memories?
With his life coming apart at the seams, and his grip on reality beginning to unravel, Greg must face the ghosts of his past if he hopes to prove his innocence and live to see another day.

About Keith Houghton

See more books from this Author
Keith Houghton spent too much of his childhood reading science-fiction books, mostly by flashlight and tented under the bed covers, dreaming of becoming a full-time novelist. When he was thirteen, his English teacher - who was fed up with reading his space stories - told him he would never make it as a science-fiction writer. Undeterred, he went on to pen several sci-fi novels and three comedy stage plays, in and around raising a family. But it wasn't until he switched genres and began to write mystery thrillers that his dream finally became reality. These days, he can be found glued to a computer or spending quality time with his grandchildren. Keith Houghton is the author of the three Gabe Quinn thrillers, Killing Hope, Crossing Lines, and Taking Liberty, as well as the psychological thriller No Coming Back.
