Where do fears come from? Beth wants to know. Do they arise from the present moment or do they lurk somewhere inside a convoluted corridor of the mind?
My protagonist, Beth Davidson, wants love and affection but not the kind offered by her intruder or at the price she may need to pay. For sixteen years her life has remained on hold and now a predator is at her heels. Is the abundant life simply surviving another day? When Lt. Wilson, the officer in charge of stalking and domestic violence, interviewed Beth he spoke of power and control. Now those words sometimes roll around in Beth’s head like dice in the hands of a gambler. On other days, it feels like the gambler’s fingers are closing in for the kill.
