New York Times bestseller Brenda Novak's third novel in the Evelyn Talbot series sees the return of psychiatrist Dr Evelyn Talbot in her purpose-built facility housing America's most terrifying psychopaths. This is SILENCE OF THE LAMBS meets Karen Rose...

Over twenty years ago, Dr Evelyn Talbot was scarred for life when her teenage boyfriend Jasper Moore tortured her and left her for dead. And she fears one day he will return to finish what he started.

Evelyn has tried to move forward and turned her trauma into her life's work. As a leading psychiatrist at Hanover House in remote Alaska, she is confronted with psychopaths and danger every day. She delves deep into their minds, despite the horrors that hide there, trying to figure out why they do what they do.

When a woman goes missing from a nearby cabin, Evelyn immediately believes one of the Hanover House killers might be involved. But something about the case brings familiar and terrifying memories back to haunt her. She fears the truth may be closer, and darker, than she first imagined.
