Three women reach the edge of terror as the secret past they all share is unearthed and turned against them. It?s been five years since the execution of Steven Gage, a devious, charming psychopath who took the lives of more than a hundred women. In those five years, three women connected with his case have moved on. His attorney has rid herself of the stigma of defending Gage. A true crime writer has gone on to new projects after her bestseller about his rampage. And Steven?s ex-girlfriend has made a new life for herself one where she won?t be reminded that she once shared her home with a monster. But someone hasn?t moved on. On the fifth anniversary of Gage?s execution, each of the women gets a private note... a chilling message that lets all three women know they haven?t been forgotten, and that in someone?s dark imagination, Gage?s legacy of terror lives on. At the time of his sentencing, Gage issued a terrifying edict that all three women hoped was meaningless. As threats against them turn deadly, the past explodes into the present. And one woman is in the fight of her life to uncover who is really responsible a killer who is determined to start up the string of murders right where they stopped.THE ANNIVERSARY is another smart, razor-sharp thriller from a writer whose work has been hailed as "addictive" (People), "marvelous" (Jeffery Deaver) and "keep[ing] us guessing until the very end"(Redbook).
