Kissy Mellors, an extraordinary photographer is at the wheel of her Blazer when a shattering accident sparks a slow-burning, ultimately explosive drama of desire and decision. It is night. She is driving back to her apartment through the campus of a Maine college. A yellow T-bird zooms past her and hits two female pedestrians. One life is ended. One life is suspended in coma. And Kissy's life is changed forever. After the accident, three men enter Kissy's life. One is James Houston, the drunken premed student responsible for the fatal collision. On is Mike Burke, the policeman who arrived at the scene moments later. And one is Junior Clootie, a college hockey star being groomed for the pros, with whom Kissy begins an intensely sexual affair while still shaken by the aftershock of the nightmare experience.

About the author (1997)

Tabitha King, the wife of the widely successful horror novelist Stephen King, is an author in her own right. Her novels range from romantic to science fiction horror thrillers. Although both Kings set their stories in their home state of Maine, their writing styles are very different. King's novel, One on One, published in 1984, revolves around a high school romance between the town's hero and star athlete, Sam Reuben, and the town pariah. King wrote The Book of Reuben, the prequel to One on One and Pearl, another book on the earlier days of the Reuben family, in 1995. Titles of her other novels include The Trap, Survivor, Caretakers, and Small World. The latter is the story of a nerdy genius who invents a device that can shrink people to a height of six inches.
