Description

Lights flood the backyard of her Brentwood home. Men with shovels have just unearthed a body next to the pool house...a corpse sitting upright in a carefully dug grave...a dead woman dressed in winter clothing. Inside the house, the telephone rings. But Ellen will not answer. Because it might be him...Once, Ellen Cusak was in complete control. Once, she was a little girl spinning out over the white surface of a frozen lake under the watchful eyes of her father. Once, she was a rising star, a Ukrainian-born figure skater who won the World Championship at nineteen, and married a Hollywood actor at twenty. Once, before everything went wrong, Ellen Cusak was a national obsession, a fantasy woman living a life of excitement, glamour, and grace. Now, she is the obsession of two men. One is stalking her. The other wants to save her.Pete Golding is a security specialist. He's made his reputation going after the psychotics who stalk celebrities. Something about the Cusak case disturbs him.While police search for a killer, Golding hunts down a very different kind of threat. Then a photograph of a young girl in a blue figure-skating dress turns up on the wall of the Cusak home, and what seemed a simple matter of victim and perpetrator becomes something darker, more disturbing, more violent; something that forces him to confront the chilling truth about Ellen Cusak...and himself.Like the figure of eight itself - a series of interconnecting curves without beginning or end - it brings together lives joined in ways that are as complex as they are twisted...until the last, terrifying revelation.show more
