Ten years later, she is stunned to hear of a murder case with markings chillingly similar to her attack. This is the story of how a rape victim reluctantly heads down the path she most fears in the hope that she can stop the attacker, find some measure of justice, and, most of all, heal herself.After enduring the kidnapping and sexual assault as a college student--and watching her attacker be brought to trial only to be set free--Quinn Carlisle has managed to put her life back together. A decade later, a young woman is murdered, found with the same word tattoo, carved with a knife in the same manner as Quinn suffered in her attack. The news explodes her rebuilt, fragile life. But it also forces Quinn to make tough choices: plow back into the world of law enforcement and perhaps stop her attacker once and for all, but also facing her demons.
