Seven years ago Kimberly Richard was convicted of a murder she didn't commit.
Six years ago she escaped from prison and lived on the run ever since.
Now her conviction has been overturned and she's returned home to try to rebuild her life.
When a storm washes a school van into a raging river, Kimberly and private investigator Cooper Washington jump in and save the kids and driver...but one child is missing. Was she ever even on the school bus? If not, who took her?
Kimberly's chance at a "real life" is jeopardized by the ghosts of the past and the suspicions of the present.
For fifteen years The Baby Doll Strangler has terrorized the East Coast, abducting teenage girls and leaving their perfectly primped bodies for their families to find.
Fifteen years ago, one girl escaped him.
That girl, now a 31-year-old woman, Emily Wright, believes she has also escaped the memories of her abduction, until a family emergency forces her back to her childhood home to care for her teenage sister.
As she tries to build a relationship with a sister she barely knows, the nightmares of her abduction return. When a girl from her sister's school is kidnapped, killed, and left on Emily’s doorstep, her paranoia goes into overdrive.
Has her kidnapper resurfaced and returned to town too?
Emily must decide who to trust: her girlhood crush Deputy Bailey O’Neill, the FBI agents who have failed to catch the killer in the past, or the only person who has defeated this monster before: herself.
Family secrets and small town rumors abound as the body count escalates and the killer draws closer to the Wright sisters.
Time is running out and Emily must face her fears and unravel the secrets of her own kidnapping before her nightmares come true and she, or her sister, become the next victims of The Baby Doll Strangler.
