Elisabeth Kennedy is a complicated, prickly ex-police detective, haunted by the memory of her younger sister's murder, and recovering from a senseless, brutal attack that leaves her with physical scars and a fractured spirit. Deter-mined to fight back, Elisabeth flees the safe confines of her mother's seaside home to return to her life in an apartment atop a crumbling London bell tower. There, she assumes she will be safe and anonymous. But she finds that not even the most cloistered places are sacrosanct--especially not the human heart. As she tracks her quarry, Elisabeth is headed for something far more chilling than loneliness, more savage than self doubt... .
