Rory Miller had one chance to fight back and she took it. Rory survived … and the serial killer who attacked her escaped. Now she must enter the witness protection program. At first it seems like her family's new home may be just the fresh start they need. But just as they’re starting to feel safe again, one of Rory's new friends goes missing. Is it a coincidence? Or is the nightmare beginning all over again? New York Times best-selling author Kate Brian is back with a haunting new YA series packed with dark twists and turns.

City Book Review
