On a summer night in Portland, Oregon, violence erupts at a Little League game -- and attorney Ami Vergano watches in horror as the quiet, gentle artist she recently befriended does the unexpected and unthinkable . . .

In a cheap motel room in Washington, D.C., Vanessa Kohler -- ex-mental patient, supermarket tabloid reporter, and estranged daughter of a powerful general running for president -- views a news broadcast of the bizarre incident and believes she's found the only witness to a deadly conspiracy.

Caught between a possible madwoman and a confessed mass murderer, between reality and delusion, Ami races to unearth the terrible truth about dark events that may or may never have happened twenty years earlier in a secluded cabin on Lost Lake.

[that] never loses its fiendish hold on the reader's attention." -- Seattle Post-Intelligencer "Frighteningly plausible...a page turner." -- Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "The suspense [is] high ... surprises keep coming ... a labyrinthine plot built on twists and surprises." -- Publishers Weekly "Delivers the goods, with plenty of action, suspense, and danger." -- Booklist "Margolin's eleventh may be his best, with everything a thriller should have." -- Kirkus Reviews
