A victim of stalking, assault, and attempted kidnapping, is she the next designated casualty of her mother’s unconventional past, something more sinister, or both.
Kristen Corbett’s intriguing family history includes uncles with clandestine occupations, and a mother, whose bittersweet past consists of a brutal assault, attempted murder, and ongoing acts of revenge. Except for her mother, the family believes repercussions from her atypical youth are a done deal, until Kristen hooks up with Jered Reardon and comes under attack. The entire family comes together, scrambling to find the perpetrator before taking Kristen’s life becomes the ultimate retaliation.
Everyone suspects Marissa’s last-known enemy has come for payback, but can’t rule out felons with links to the uncles, or anyone from Jered’s ambiguous family history. Even members of both families—Reardons and Corbetts—come under suspicion. It’s not until the two families get together that it becomes obvious, a member of the Reardon family has a connection to Marissa’s past. That discovery leads to the final reckoning—one left standing.
