"I fought the vision that threatened to replace one real nightmare with another. The fugue state could cost me my life."
After being kidnapped and almost killed by a psychopath, a normal life was all Darla Kelly hoped for. But when she stumbles across evidence that her recently murdered father had hired a PI – and had kept it from her – her life becomes anything but normal. As she delves deeper into her father's secret, bizarre things start happening to her that she can't explain, and she suspects someone is trying to prevent her from finding out what he was looking into.
When she crosses paths with her old friend Detective Mike Shafer, new secrets emerge — and murders begin to multiply. A John Doe everyone seems to want dead pulls Dar deeper into danger. Answers await her, if she can stay alive long enough to find them.
A stand-alone sequel to Shards Of Trust
