Kate McDonald is a dedicated social worker at a bustling Los Angeles hospital. Her husband Paul is a deputy D.A. and a respected member of the hospital Board of Directors. Together, they've been blessed with a healthy new baby boy named Alex. But something else is happening at the McDonald home. Something terrifying.

A series of mishaps, each more bizarre than the last, has befallen the McDonalds' beautiful eight-month-old son, leading to the shocking accusation of abuse. Suddenly, Kate is pulled into the heart of a nightmare that not only threatens to destroy her career and her marriage, but her very sanity. Then, in the dead of night, the anonymous phone calls begin..."You don't know why this is happening, do you, Kate?"

Someone with an unfathomable motive has invaded Kate McDonald's life. And now that some person is setting an inescapable trap...with Alex as the bait. For Kate, learning the reason behind this torment means delving deep into the shadowy recesses of her own past, including the secrets she's hidden even from herself. Because what Kate can't remember may be the most dangerous thing of all.
