Makedde Vanderwall is a woman with a past. She is beautiful, street-smart and single, a model paying her way through a degree in forensic psychology. But behind the wit and winning smile is a woman haunted by violent nightmares and plagued by thoughts of Detective Andy Flynn, the ex-lover who saved her from a serial killer in Sydney. Mak has returned to Vancouver, her hometown in Canada, eager to finish her studies, move on from the ordeal, and find some peace of mind. But instead she walks straight into a city gripped by fear, and a campus where the students are fair game. As winter closes in and the days grow shorter, Mak is drawn into a shifting world of unstable minds and untrustworthy men, where motives are unclear and desires are unchecked. Her past cannot be so easily forgotten, and she must face her greatest challenge yet.

Professional reviews

"Makedde (Mak) is haunted by insomnia and violent nightmares. Leaving Australia, she returns to Vancouver, resumes her studies in forensic psychology, begins therapy, and thinks her life is finally back to normal. One day Mak notices a young student has stopped attending classes. Later, she is reported missing. Then another student goes missing. So begins the downward spiral of this gripping psychological suspense story. Tara Moss's narration is lively, spirited, and exceptionally pleasant to hear, yet she doesn't differentiate between male and female characters, nor between Canadian and Australian accents. Her distinction between psychopathy and antisocial personality disorders is spot-on, while being flawless and tightly integrated into the plot. K.A.T. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
