Seven years ago, I was kidnapped and held against my will by a monster who made me his . I was kept for more than forty days -- 964 hours, to be precise. 964 hours of torment, fear, and humiliation. Each of those hours twisted me until I was no longer Carolyn OMalley, a woman with a normal life, a woman who lived in a nice home on a nice street with a man who loved her, with a sweet little dog and a good job and a life just like yours...By the time I jumped out of a window and escaped, running naked through the snow to freedom, I was mangled into the person I am today, a scarred and crippled woman whose lover was brutally murdered, whose life was torn asunder, a creature who lost everything in those nights of terror.Now there was just one focus in my life: Find the monster and kill him. Ive spent the years recovering from my wounds, planning, and training for what I would do. My chance might finally be here, if I play my cards right. The FBI task force has laid a trap with my bodyguard, Ned Buchanan, as the bait. Ill be going into the trap with him and if I have my chance...Have you ever wondered what happens to us afterward, to those who were missed? Have you ever wondered how we feel, how we adjust to real life again? Have you ever wondered what would happen if we could face our torturer?Have you ever wondered how good revenge might feel?
