This was a quick gulp as most Patterson books are. But, I still enjoyed it.
Nina Bloom is a successful lawyer and single mom to her sixteen-year-old daughter Emma. At a Yankees game one evening, someone from her past sees her and is determined to kill her.
Twenty years earlier, she'd been Jeanine, a college student on spring break with her boyfriend. One night, after too many drinks, she hears her boyfriend cheating on her so she steals his car and runs over a man. The cop who shows up takes pity on her and helps her dispose of the body. They fall in love and get married. But, is he who he claims to be? No, so Jeanine has to escape and begin a new life.
Now, the past has intruded into that new life and Nina must do everything she can to protect herself and her daughter.
