Summary
I know who killed my sister. I wrote this book for him. Twelve years ago, Linda's sister Anna was murdered. Her killer was never caught, but Linda saw him. Now, all these years later, she's just seen him again on TV. He's become a well-known journalist, and Linda - a famous novelist and infamous recluse - knows no one will believe her if she accuses him. She does the only thing she can think of - she sets a trap, writing a thriller called Blood Sisters about the unsolved murder of a young woman. When Blood Sisters is published, Linda agrees to give just one media interview. At home. To the one person who knows more about the case than she does
Summary
For 11 years, author Linda Conrads has never set foot outside her home. Haunted by the unsolved murder of her younger sister and the face of the man she saw fleeing the scene, Linda's hermit existence helps her cope with debilitating anxiety. When she sees her sister's murderer on television, Linda resolves to use the plot of her next novel to lay a trap for him. As the plan is set in motion and the past comes rushing back, Linda's memories--and her very sanity--are called into question
