A gripping tale of psychological suspense.
There is no trace of Paul Luden's ex-wife at his old home, a two-bedroom log cabin on the shores of Granite Lake. It's fall. The summer people are long gone. The year-round population is sparse. No one in the small community has seen her for days. A friend has alerted Paul, who has driven up from L.A. with his embarrassingly young girlfriend, hoping for the best. "I mean, she could be in Bosnia doing humanitarian relief." Together they cross the lake and approach the house. The front door is locked and the boat is tethered. Entering through an open back door, Paul steps out of his normal existence into one of increasing terror.
Far from over, past, gone, his old life coils around him, pulling him in, until his destiny is once again inexorably joined to his ex-wife's and threatens to tear him asunder.
