While working for an Atlantic City newspaper, Owen Keane is asked to investigate a twenty-year-old multiple homicide that claimed all but one member of a prominent local family. Keane's client is the sole survivor, a baby at the time of the killings and now a lost member of Generation X, as haunted by her unexplained escape as she is by the faceless threat that still hangs over her. Keane journeys into the past, uncovering a complex and dangerous trail of altered identities and secret guilt. His search leads Keane to a dual confrontation, as he must face both the murderer and his own long-held fears.
