"Fans of Mary HigginsClark will greet this novel with enthusiasm. Like Clark in her early classicmystery/suspense novel A Stranger Is Watching, Gligor creates afrightening world for a sympathetic protagonist. Ann Kern, loving wife andmother, is surrounded by threats. Her husband, an alcoholic and a gambler, isemotionally unstable. There is also a serial killer on the prowl on the westside of Cincinnati and it appears that Ann is intended to be his next victim.There are a number of possible suspects. Author Gligor thoroughly develops eachcharacter in the novel, going into back stories, thoughts, behavior andactions. But this does not slow the plot which develops at a fast pace.Definitely a novel the reader will not put down until the final words areread."

From the Author
Shecouldn't breathe. He was twisting the cord around her neck, choking her, and hewas pulling it tighter and tighter. She tried to swallow and her mouth filledwith a bitter, metallic liquid: blood, her blood. She gasped for air and clawedat the cord that was strangling her. She tried to kick him but she couldn'tmove her legs. Her head throbbed with an almost unbearable pain and she feltlight-headed.
Shefought as hard as she could to stay conscious but she knew that her strengthwas almost gone. She squeezed her eyes shut and saw white lines that lookedlike flashes of lightning zigzagging back and forth, on and off. She grittedher teeth in pain. Death was closing in on her; she knew it. Was this it? Wasthis how her life was going to end? Please God, no, she silently prayed. PleaseGod, help me!
