Beth Rivers, known to the world by her pen name Elizabeth Fairchild, has just escaped after being kidnapped by a crazed super-fan. Having thrown herself from his speeding van, Beth suffered a severe head injury and memory loss. Now, scarred and still healing, she disappears to the remote town of Benedict, Alaska―the only place Beth can be sure that no one will find her. But when she arrives, she learns that a woman named Linda Rafferty has been found dead in what looks like a suicide. Yet no one in the close-knit community quite believes that Linda killed herself, including the sheriff.
While Beth waits for her own attacker to be apprehended in the lower forty-eight, she takes it upon herself to investigate Linda’s death and write about it in the Benedict town newspaper. As rumors of murder spread, suspicion falls upon the felons staying at a local halfway house―and on Beth herself. As she fights to clear her name, and bring Linda’s killer to justice, Beth is left with more questions than answers. . .and finds that the investigation is stirring up old memories that are better left forgotten.
