When Kara Wald's twin sister, Kelly, dies an untimely death, Kara returns to New York City, a city she had left ten years prior in order to return to the Pennsylvania countryside. When she arrives to claim her sister's body, Kara meets up with her old boyfriend, Rob Harris, now a detective with the New York City Police Department.
The police are inclined to view Kelly's death as a suicide, as she had leapt out of a twelfth story window in a hotel, clad only in a black garter belt and black stockings, after having sex with two strangers. Kara, however, is adamant that the circumstances under which Kelly died can be nothing short of murder. After all, the Kelly she knew was a caring nurse for whom such behavior would have been totally out of character.
Kara's search for the truth takes her to Kelly's psychiatrist, a man who seems to hold the key to Kelly's bizarre behavior prior to her death. What Kara uncovers, however, is something so sinister and evil that it will ensnare her as it had her sister. The only question is whether she will be able to escape its clutches and come to term with her own secret past.
This is an entertaining book that will keep the reader compulsively turning its pages. Although the more discerning reader may ascertain what is going on before Kara and Rob do, this will not diminish the enjoyment one will derive from this plot driven book. The tension and suspense is maintained throughout, as the plot is somewhat unusual with more than its fair share of twists and turns. Fans of the author and those who enjoy a suspenseful read will not be disappointed by this book.
