When love turns to obsession thereís no place to hide.

Preparing to escape the darkest period of her life, Ruth Gemmill needs the consolation of her brother, Alex, a man she cannot breathe without. Itís not the first time. She couldnít breathe without Matt either. Matt, who loved to beat her--until Ruth found the strength to escape the terrifying abuse of her domestic existence.

Or so she would like to think. Little does she realize the extent of the crippling cobwebs her vicious lover has spun throughout her mind....But fate deals Ruth another blow when Alex suddenly disappears. To bring him home, Ruth is forced to confront her emotional demons through a bewildering landscape, where the phantoms of a menacing past lurk around every corner, determined to wake Ruth up to the most horrifying reality of all. Some webs can never be swept away, some spiders sting to destroy.
