In order to keep her son safe, a single mother must discover who’s leaving her cryptic messages about the deaths of young boys, boys her sons age, and why.
Ten-year-old Brian McKibben is a wanderer. Eight months ago he wandered into the street and was hit by a truck. Olivia Richards, his newly divorced mother, was accused of neglect by Child Protection Services. She’s doing her best to prove them wrong. Essential oils, a consultation with an herbalist, and an airtight schedule are only some of the things she does to keep Brian safe and help him heal from brain damage caused by the accident.
But her carefully laid plans begin to unravel when it becomes apparent Olivia’s CPS caseworker isn’t the only one who’s watching her. The walls of the Pilates Studio she co-owns seem to have eyes, especially at night. Threatening messages begin showing up in strange places. Someone is stalking her. Read an excerpt.
