Publication: Simon and Schuster, 1940, New York
First U.K. edition. Signed and dated by the author. Fine in dust jacket. It's a profile, like all the others on the online dating site. As NYPD Detective Kat Donovan focuses on the accompanying picture, she feels her whole world explode. Staring back at her is her ex-fiancé Jeff, the man who shattered her heart eighteen years ago. Kat feels a spark, wondering if this might be the moment when past tragedies recede and a new world opens up to her, but when she reaches out to the man in the profile, her hope quickly darkens into suspicion and then terror as an unspeakable conspiracy comes to light. As Kat's hope for a second chance with Jeff grows more and more elusive, she is consumed by an investigation that challenges her feelings about everyone she ever loved - her former fiancé, her mother, and even her father, whose cruel murder so long ago has never been fully explained.
