SHE NEVER REALIZED JUST HOW PERFECT...
Single parenthood is challenging enough for Zoe Hayes, raising a young daughter in Queen Village, a Philadelphia suburb whose homes--like its residents--have seen better days. Then comes the blustery afternoon when little Molly makes a shocking discovery while playing outdoors: a dismembered finger.

HER IMPERFECT LIFE REALLY WAS...
What Zoe longs to believe is a gruesome fluke quickly takes on unsettling significance. One by one, young nannies are vanishing from the neighborhood, falling victim to a shadowy killer. Uneasily drawn into the chilling case--and an unexpected relationship--by enigmatic Detective Nick Stiles, Zoe assumes she and Molly are safe. But then terror strikes close to home.

UNTIL SHE FOUND IT IN JEOPARDY...
Now, Zoe must accept that nobody in Queen Village is protected. A bloodthirsty predator lurks nearby, perhaps concealed behind a passing stranger's friendly smile, a longtime neighbor's front door--or, as Zoe fears most, perhaps even nearer than that...

"Absolutely fantastic."
--Midwest Book Review

"A page-turning success...hard to put down."
--Dallas Morning News
